Obviously you're right ! As my box did restart, with some applications in place, some needed to be re installed.
About these in place, there is some work to do as my widget engine (konfabulator, ex yahoo widget), running from the initial start-up has yet shown me some weakness : some widget not showing the change in their preferences.
I will see in the hours to come the amount of the work to be done to retreive my old box but saddly I'm afraid that my real move will be to do a fresh clean install.... ARggggg.... So many applications, configurations.... Damned, I really need to buy some HDD and proceed like I did in the xp time : image my system upon a regular basis and stick to that !
PS : I used ERUNT & ERDNT but they weren't enough....
