reboot?? oh oh..
it still shows 2.6.24-1 for the kernel.. and yes, even though the
session says kde, the splash screen ( after a reboot:) does show 4.1 .
It does keep booting with 2 open windows that are blank. Not sure what
they are supposed to be, the the right-click says ( remove unknown window?)

Now I get a Partial Upgrade option for software upgrades. The next
screen says " an upgrade from Intrepid to Hardy is not supported with
this tool".

next question is, what should my sources.list show for a distribution??
testing? Intrepid?
