broken MEPIS after update, looking for new "stable" repositories - any ideas?
beinig a linux user I often switch my distro and I learn a lot on the way through them. But when someone asked recently to give them MEPIS, I was happy to do so.
About a week ago they did their first update, using Synaptic, and all went well (or so i heard over the phone). Now, however, the bootup just brings them to a terminal login, no KDE. I haven't reached them over the phone to try to help, but I am hoping that i needn't make the hour-long drive to try to fix this myself.
I am guessing/hoping that another round of updates will fix this? I am not positive that they even changed their sources from the .us and .non-us that is default with MEPIS, but assuming they did, should this bring them back on course?
And once we fix it, one way or another, what are some decent repositories that we can switch to that are STABLE so that we needn't have this problem again? I've been to apt-get.org but i'm not sure what exactly to look for.
p.s. why have my (default) fonts all changed since my last MEPIS update!?
