So I finally bit the bullet and upgraded through the /lib softlink change on my laptop, which involved a variety of techniques gleaned from the forums etc... I ended up having to delete the old lib directory and boot from usb and chroot to get the packages I needed reinstalled.
Everything is working now, except sudo and xlock both will not accept the user passwords I type in. I have no idea where to even start researching the problem,
If someone can point me to where to start, or a quick fix, that would be dandy.
-- my locales wasn't set ... everything works now
