Any advice gratefully received on upgrading E17.
I have PCLOS e17 installed on an old tosh laptop, and it works very well. I noticed the announcement re upgraded packages ( and the caution about experimental) and gave it a try. Marked a lot for upgrade including the e17 stuff and lost a good chunk of the desktop.
Reinstalled the whole thing, and tried to upgrade again with only the e17 packages. This time trying to make a shelf causes a crash.
Back to a clean install and when I select e as the package to install the following are marked for removal.
elicit enhance entrance epsilon esmart estickies etk eel exalt exhibit exml expedite
Is this correct?, according to their descriptions some of these are required for e17.
Next. Which repo to use, At the moment I have left it as default http://distro.ibiblio.org
..... First time round I was using a geographically closer mirror and got errors on missing packages. Lots on that repo list in synaptic but which one?
