Very Kind of you Ed to reply
My apologies for the second reply.
However to clarify my issue:
Going back to an older version of my VM startup script and starting a VM
of Slackware64-14.2 (ie not current) all has returned to normal.
So it seems I made a mistake when converting to current as the VM.
I will have to try and dig deeper to find the issue.
