Tried upgrading directly from 8.04.
Bah ha hah ha. Left me with a dead system. Good thing I backed up 8.04
New approach: Install Ubuntu 9.10 freshly, thus bypassing kde4 entirely, then
add Pearson repos.
Initial 9.10 without kde fine so far. After installing kde3 all of a sudden
terminal input became sluggish. after a keypress it took up to 5 seconds

Not rebooted yet. Copied old .kde from other partition to .kde3.
After reboot: keyboard problem stays, DVB-T via Terratec Cinergy T2 not
working. Google. Problem with that Cinergy. Plucked it, keyboard returns to

Konqueror: no Baghira! I can bear with the theme, actually don't use it
anymore, but the Baghira sidebar in Konq is one of the more useful additions.
I want that back! Help!
Gonna reboot now and see if that recompiled v4l drivers do any good to the
