Hello
somehow, after the xorg broken package i removed many packages of my system.
now I am in a situation where i try to install xserver-xorg-radeon and I get that xserver-xorg-radeon Depends on xorg-video-abi-20

Is it possible to avoid a reinstall?

If I remove everything what commands I have to use in order to have a working aptosid system?

This is the first time after many years that I manage tobrake my system. However it is true, that I had to upgrade for many weeks (1300 MB upgrade).
Thanks in advance

I have Xorg packages to be removed in dist-upgrade, so I'd wait still Saturday and try again
      Code:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  iptables xorg xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-input-mouse xserver-xorg-video-ati
  xserver-xorg-video-fbdev xserver-xorg-video-mach64 xserver-xorg-video-r128 xserver-xorg-video-radeon
  xserver-xorg-video-vesa

Yes, the currently ongoing X.org transition will make dist-upgrades (and the same from new installs) impossible for a few more days.
