why am I using lynx to write this

I had a working Mandrakelinux 10.0 installation some 30 minutes ago. Now I am using lynx to write this blog entry. You never heard about lynx before? It's a textmode web browser and I am happy to have it.
In my effort to install amaroK from source I had to upgrade various parts of my installation, because it would not compile otherwise. What I didn't know was, that replacing some of the required libraries is not a good idea. Something went wrong and after reboot, kinit would fail and I am left with a textmode konsole only.
This will be a busy night :(
Conclusion: Never touch system libraries before doing extensive research.

Wish me luck.
