...more history...

I’m pleased to note that you can lose your Internet connection partway through upgrading Oneiric Ocelot Kubuntu to Precise Pangolin at the point where the GUI doesn’t actually work, then reboot it into text mode (RunLevel 1), bring up a network connection by hand, apt-get upgrade then hand-install the numerous things it held back on... (dpkg does an interactive dance routine a few times, catching up on half-done things) & it all works!

Better than that, the final recompile of dvdauthor is not suffering the lack-of-menu-backgrounds in the final product when invoked via devede which several previous versions did.
