I did the same thing you did through synaptic and checked the "dist-upgrade box in mintupdate. Refreshed, but it said my system is up to date (Mint6 KDE RC1). So I rebooted my computer and now I am unable to get past the login screen. I enter my password and it acts like it is going to login, flashes the mouse wait cursor, black/blank screen then back to the longin prompt. I tried everything, shutdown and did a restart from off...nothing. Tried the failsafe boot in grub...still nothing.
I am currently searching these forums of how to get past the login screen.
Also, when I installed the "mint-meta-kde" package in synaptic it also installed some mint artwork for KDE. Now when I get the GRUB option menu to choose Mint6, Mint6 failsafe, Memtest, or XP the Mint logo and the Help text is "GREEN." Now I know this is Mint and it is green. But I actually prefer the blue which the RC1 HAD. How to change...errr, for now I will be happy just to get past the login screen.
Darn, does this mean I have to boot in to XP and download the Mint6 ISO and do a fresh install. I have almost forgot that I even had XP on the other partition. Mint6 KDE is that GOOD!!!
Boo did you include the key for the amarok 2 ppa ? ppa for kde 4 works fine but error that the key is not available for the amarok ppa.
(We) need to have the dist-upgrade removed from the upgrade from RC instructions.
It breaks kdm.
this would be due to the ppa repo not being enabled.

++ There seems to be a lot of programs installed by default in the Mint 6 KDE final. Envy, compiz, a TON of language packs that I don't need, and a few other programs that weren't previously installed in the RC1. I would prefer those to not be installed by default. No big deal as I can just uninstall them in synaptic. But something to note.
There was also a pop-up when KDE first ran saying something about a database. Nepomuk??? I don't need a database installed on my computer.
As for the language packs, how come they are installed if I choose English as default in the install steps. I don't need all of the others.
why is Open Office at version 2.4??

Ubuntu repos ....
We still depend too much on Ubuntu
Upgrading is no simple procedure if my memory serves me right - it is described somewhere in the forum or the blog
