install report: from 8.04 to 9.10

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 
before something happened. 
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 
So this is NOT a kde3 problem, seems this just rolled in with another upgrade. 
Yeah well, now that Shuttleworth said he's had it *buntu will be going 
downhill I guess...

Back on topic.

KDE won't even start. /home/dexter now belongs to root:root for reasons beyond 
me - *that* now seems to be a kde3 thing indeed.

Fixed permissions manually.

Kopete lost theme settings. Minor casualty.

KMail works, no german i18n tho, GPG tested partially, seems to work (hope 
this still stands when I press the send key....), filters work.

Manually added KNewsTicker (one of the main reasons apart from that bloody 
Phonon thingy why I don't want to switch to KDE4)

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 
Cinergy problem.
