If it is not one thing it's another!

I'm sleep deprived too! Bleary Eyed!

It said that some of the packages were corrupted! The ones read off the
DVD's. It gets so far along, and then crashes, as it is reading the
lists of the Packages off the DVD's, when you open either Add/Remove or
Synaptic. Most likely caused by Drop outs on the CD's or DVD's. I
notified the company I bought them from, and they sent me another set,
but these are the ones I used for add a CD, and now Synaptic Crashes,
and will not open. ADD/REMOVE will not open! Software sources still
opens. No Idea where the problem is. 7.10 is working nice.
