    Hehe, made the same mistake on mum's Kubuntu installation trying to go from breezy => dapper - wouldn't have it. I ended up re-installing, but it was a problem with X that I had.

    Hope you manage to get it sorted

    phew, its working.
    The upgrade decided to take-out the networking.
    apt-get update -f fixed it after some messing around.
    I gotta learn to think these things through a bit before I hit that [Enter] key !

    Hehe, I also know the pain of rebooting via ssh and finding it doesnt come back up, or worse, uninstalling the network driver / bringing the interface down / killing the dhcpcd
