    Alternate CD upgrade, vid & update problems

    I upgraded with the alternate install CD. Rebooted and ran the update manager. I now have this message:


    When I run the 'partial upgrade' it download the packages, but then crashes out and doesn't install them


    Crashes out right after this last package


    Also, I went to play URban Terror after the upgrade and it's choppy and the sound is messed up. Any ideas?

    You could try the following from a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
    It might deinstall some programs you rely on, so please take note and reinstall them afterwards.

    Thanks...I think it worked. I also had to re-enable my restricted drivers.

    Glad that helped.
