Kubuntu, Breezy to Dapper through Apt on laptop: BAD SCOOBIES!

ok, so I just thought I'd drop a post here about this. Last night I decided to do an apt upgrade from breezy to dapper, just for shats and giggles.

Hardware: Dell Inspiron 2200 (running a Celeron-M 1.4ghz chip). Everything is onboard on this laptop. Breezy works, well, like a breeze. I've had it up and running for quite a while now (other than when I CHOSE to reinstall just to get a clean slate).

So I changed my source.list to dapper, ran apt-get update, then apt-get dist-upgrade. Took a while, as there are a ton of package changes. When it was done with it's upgrade, rebooted, and all of a sudden it locked up at the 'checking battery integrity'. The only way to get around this was to ctrl-alt-f2, manually login, killall the kdm that was running, run kdm again. When I got into dapper, it was buggy as all hell (way more than other people are experiencing), with frequent lockups, and menu's and whatnot being messed up, nothing really working right. I finally killed it and did a fresh breezy install.

So, tell me, did I do something wrong in doing an apt upgrade? Or does this sound (as I suspect) like dapper doesn't like my hardware.

At any rate, cheers!

Apt-get upgrade and dist-upgrade are trouble plain and simple. I've had nothing but trouble with every debian type distro trying.

I bet if you did a fresh install of dapper, all would be well.
