I tried to make a safe-upgrade on a friend's pc where i had intalled BT4 on hard disk. It dowloaded about 100M. First i had activated almost all repositories, but had not fixed the gpg issue at this moment.
Finally i ended up no more being able to open any new applications when finished, even konsole, but aireplay-ng was still running (i was using it at the same moment)
I rebooted and..had by default immediately the fmwm desktop! Nothing else left it seems. :D
Looks like you are playing around with some stuff you shouldn't maybe. It is known that an update breaks KDE.
Hopefully you weren't trying to update over wifi......
Oh, there's no such thing as a "safe update"....
Well there is exactly one in life:
death. But well basically yeah, you are right. :)
well i did it over wif man! :D

Well the apt-get upgrade is partially broken with the kde libs problem Muts talks about on his blog. Then you were screwing around with airplay-ng at the same time. That just screams "I have no freaking idea what I'm doing". Think of it as doing an oil and filter change while the engine is running. Probably not going to turn out well.

So BT4 beta is buggy, but it is a beta version of course, so no surprise after all, we are all aware of that.
