Thanks for that info but I had already tried the reload Synaptic route but draklive-install did not appear in the program list which is why I asked the question. However it did cause me to rethink and perhaps I have the repository situation wrong, I thought all repositories were the same. I have been updating this Enlightenment system daily for about 10 days now, (after the repository speed test to set the repository), and after applying all the nominated updates the draklive-install process was still not in the list of packages. I have just changed the repository a couple of times, reloaded and after the second change the draklive-install process appeared, I installed it together with some listed updates and have successfully created my own livedvd which seems to work like a charm on my Toshiba with the exception that there is no Install icon on the desktop. I'll check the forum and see what I can find out about starting the install.
I'd appreciate a quick rundown on the Repository situation from one of our 'learned members' if that's possible.
