I would be interested to know what the error is.  I am not sure if you can get 
the Application Manager to tell you but if you have an Xterm with root access 
can you try "dpkg -i <file>" and let me know what error you get (just send it 
to me -- no need to bother the list)?

I am currently working on the libmimedir-gnome and libsoup problems -- I hope 
to have updated kits some time over the weekend.  By the way, if anyone hits 
any packaging bugs with GPE please report them in the GPE bugzilla 

You will not lose your data if you uninstall GPE.  However, if you are at all 
worried the best thing to do is to use Xterm and copy the files in the ~/.gpe 
directory to somewhere safe.  For example:

cd && mkdir saved-gpe && cp .gpe/* saved-gpe/
