Working beautifully now. Fast, smooth, looks good.
First reboot with kernel 3.2.0-18 caused it to reset but it's worked
fine since then.
All updates installed fine, as did lubuntu-restricted-extras -
although with much whinging about libavcodecs53 being removed. A whole
ton of packages were reported missing at the final, "building package
database" stage, but they are all ones that I would not expect to be
there - e.g. bits of KDE - and there were no problems.
Final installed image is only about 2.1GB with the old kernel removed
and the APT cache emptied.
I am impressed so far!
I've added gnome-system-monitor, the IcedTea JVM, AdBlock+ to Chromium
and xterm. It's tiny, well, tiny for 2012, fast and slick. It looks
There is no startup sound, although sound is working fine, e.g. in
Youtube. That seems a little odd.
Also, I have one trivial problem, which I will report separately.
