No, still here, and will be here for another 10 hours or so.

What was going wrong? What were the errors?

Kind regards,

Eric

Oh, only 10 hours?

Update, seemed to work fine.

Upgrade, seeded to work fine.

Install, not so hot. Same errors as before: "couldn't find kde-base" etc...

The correct syntax is
Code:
apt-get install kdebase

Let's take it a bit further. Go back to your Debian console, login as root and do the following:
Code:
cd /etc/apt
cat sources.list
That file should contain something like this:
Code:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
If it does, all good. If it doesn't then you'll have to add them to that file using an editor:
Code:
nano sources.list
type in what's needed there and exit with CTRL-X, respond yes when asked to save.

Next check if you have xorg-xserver installed:
Code:
dpkg -l 'xserver-xorg'
If it's there, good, if it's not:
Code:
apt-get install xserver-xorg
Next try:
Code:
apt-get install kdebase
Kind regards,

Eric

Thanks repo, I knew it had to be something that simple that I just overlooked it.

Kind regards,

Sure you'll get it to work, maybe even before you get hooked on cafeine beyond the point of no return

Kind regards,

Eric

Use the quotes 'xserver-xorg' where indicated, right?

After all that, I logged out, logged back into root, and tried to get in again with startx.
No go. What's next?
