<div><br>Well ... I am one of those users caught a bit by doing an "apt-get upgrade" (more specifically I took the Red Pill and upgraded some core packages) and expecting it to "do the right thing". I didn't get the constant rebooting but I am experiencing random application crashes now.
<br><br>"The right thing" that I was expecting was:<br>- Upgrade core packages with newer more stable more up to date packages with possible security fixes and functionality fixes but no great leaps in versions<br>
- any unstable, in-development packages for the next version of the OS would be in a separate repository component that would need to be specificially enabled<br>- once a new stable branch was developed, I could use apt-get upgrade to upgrade my 770 to it after changing the repository info over
<br><br>I understand now that the repositories are not arranged that way for the 770 ... I just wish they were.<br>I also have to figure out which packages to downgrade in order for my 770 to become stable again. Maybe a reflash is the simplest way.
