Issue all solved and new UUID and Label given to drive.
I didn't know the Manual was available from Synaptic !. I haven't taken anything from the repositories since they were frozen 'cos I didn't want to bork my system. Would it be ok to get the manual now or should I wait until i've moved to PCLOS2010 Final ?.
I d/l-install the man pages as the first thing I do after a new installation. When I installed the betas, the man pages for the installed apps were removed to make space on the disk, so I reinstalled everything through Synaptic, just to get those man pages restored. There is also a separate man-pages package that includes pages for all the basic Linux commands, which I install. Each application usually has it's own man page that is part of the package, that gets added to the collection when the app is installed, so you only have the man pages for the apps you use, rather than a bunch of space taken up by pages for apps you don't use. All in all, a good system.
I'll be keeping my current installation as well as the 2010 Final, because there is still functionality missing from KDE4 that is present in KDE3.5, and it's things I use. You may want to do the same, until you're sure that 2010 has everything working that you need. Just a thought. You should have a number of man pages already, from the apps you've installed, so adding the man-pages package shouldn't hurt anything, just fill in some blanks.
