RE: Newbie apt-get question
A quick update that I just realized. When I try to do apt-get install
konsole I was getting a dependency error on xutils. I just ran "apt-get
install xutils" and it is moving along so I may be on the right path for

Yeah, that's 3.3.6. Also, I get an XFree86 version number as the
next line under vendor release number, but maybe that was added in 4.
I hesitate to ask the obvious, but have you logged out of your X
session and logged back in since doing the upgrade?
Also, I'm running 4.1 but I have no /var/log/xfree86.log. Just my
gdm logs and an old old xdm.log

That seems right. It should announce it's going to download a whole
pile of packages when you do that.
What exactly is the dependency error you are getting?
