Thank you all.
@uncleV: I don't know, went away for half an hour and on return it was stranded at init....
Actually it was LXDE-flavour. Thanks.
@Old-polack: thanks, sorry, i've missed the info about ibiblio-repo being on the move, been slaving at work the last few weeks. I'll be sure to try your suggestions.
@texstar: well, I was fresh out of cd/dvd's and had the old one lying around. My thougt was, install that one and update it... and abracadabra... bob's your uncle
nb.: have used my 2 last cd's for pclos-lxde 2010.12 and given them to friends, they are now up and running, smiling.Note to self: BUY NEW CD's
?) I thought it was preferred, NOT to use the ibiblio-repo, so me being danish, I pointed it to "ftp/klid.dk..."
I'll give it another go with a fresh 2010.12 (2011.1?) iso and skip the coffee
