I think it's just the way the program works- the interface is not always consistent. You can use up & down to do somethings, like return from the CONTINUE button, but must use Tab to get there. very strange.. but it does work.. and so, the bug is not a bug...
Sorry for bothering everyone.. Somehow, i was afraid it was me.. That's what i get for working at 3 am..

Is that possible? to take a list of the installed packages and just let the system retrieve them after a full reinstall?You should be able to do: dpkg --get-selections save the output somewhere (dpkg --get-selections > file) And later: dpkg --set-selections < file apt-get dselect-upgrade apt-get dist-upgrade However, you could just try to make an LVM partition on your swap partition... this way, no important data would get lost. -- Martin Michlmayr email@example.com
