Well, I apparently installed the wrong dvd, I was using the first dvd of 
9.4 debian, when I should have been using the stretch uspace disc to 
install linuxcnc. That is after all, the target of this  masochistic 
exercise. :)

So I've now burnt the correct disk and will re-install as if the drive is 
clean by letting the installer do the partitioning over.

These guys make a pretty good installer simply because they know what it 
needs and doesn't need to run LinuxCNC right. They don't care if it 
doesn't run on cousin Molly's washing machine, although with some config 
effort, it can probably run it, better than the programming it came 

I certainly had no such problems installing tde on top of the kde I 
originally loaded onto my Dell running a grizzly G0704 mill on a special 
wheezy install.  So I'll do the same and then install tde on that.

Back later with grins or tears.

Thanks Michelle.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
