I was able to get Knoppix installed on my HD - - it's a heavenly thing.

I was then able to apt-get update/upgrade without problems.

Then I apt-get dist-upgrade and KONSOLE crashes with a:

"The application Konsole (konsole) crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV)."

What's weird is that my root account's desktop had a konsole opened when I had logged out -- this one starts up just fine. Click on the icon or type it into a command line (from, say, rxvt) and it fails.

I'm really new to debian so I'm not sure if this is a KNOPPIX or DEBIAN issue. Any help is appreciated.
