    Nice, just wish sudo apt-get dist-upgrade wouldn't render my Kubuntu 15.04 system unbootable by switching to systemd...

    Systemd is a big great menace.

    Sure can be. Do you know of a fix for VirtualBox guests?

    On top of Windows 7 64-bit. I believe I posted about that in one of my threads, and it was in my sig.

    Now having the same experience with sudo apt-get upgrade... To hell with systemd, switching back to upstart.

    Except that doesn't work either, and I'll have to manually repair it...

    Actually, to hell with it. Completely broken, I'm trying Fedora 22 Alpha KDE instead.

    That's not necessarily related to Plasma. Kernel panic is a different sort of foobar.

    What do you know, Plasma 5 on Fedora 22 also doesn't support 3D acceleration, even after manually installing Guest Additions from VirtualBox.
