First of all, have burned to cd and verified. Problems unchanged.
I have searched on both issues and could find no definitive/non-drastic answers.
As previously intimated, I've installed various incarnations of PCLos over the years across 5 machines and graphics has never been an issue (perhaps occasionally using proprietary drivers). But, to my knowledge, there are no proprietary drivers for Intel? Anyway, other issues
This program has exited abnormally
when launching "Configure Video Card" from "Configure Printer..." from CC is not very encouraging (again never previously been an issue)!
Also from search, it would seem that partitions above sda15 (an old scsii limitation) are not, per ce, a problem. Anyway, I'm reluctant to trash a stable distro in a lower partition, just to find out if the kde and other warnings disappear.
I wonder if the 64bit edition, albeit at RC stage would be more promising...
