Re: VLC missing - didn't uninstalled it

I did a fresh install of MX and it had all of the files for VLC, but the player itself was missing. I had to install it from the stable repo.

Re: Upgrade question

I was unable to find boot options so I waved the white flag and reinstalled MX. Things are now running nicely.

you an use the live usb to modify your grub settings. I think mx-boot-options will work on a chroot environment.
