Not a good idea to say "Yes" here… Please everybody, wait if you need a working graphical environment Exclamation

Half of the xserver upload was automatically rejected by the archive cause of "wrong" dependencies (not strict enough). The thing is that this not-strict enough would only effect "oldstable"…

Lets see what will get fixed: The dependency or the tool doing the autoreject (lintian). (As its a discussion point now: Do we (as in debian developer) need to care for oldstable in terms of easy backportability?)

It could be pointed out that most of those video drivers don't need to be on your system at all. Now might be a good time to do some housecleaning ie. manually purge --remove those drivers that you know you don't need. A hold could be put on the xorg essentials and the actual drivers you do need. Or as DK suggests, wait a day or two and it might sort itself out. After all we're only 1 day into the unfreeze.

Most of those video drivers comes as dependencies. Even if I remove them (i did that in the past) will be installed again in the next upgrade.

My approach at the moment is to wait a couple of days before I consider puting packages on hold.

Yes that will happen on the next major Xorg upgrade

and if 32-bit users feel happy they are, until now, not hit by this: dont touch that dial!
32-bit has really nice ffmpeg breakage in stock for you.

Was about to DU and saw the list of removals... I decided I should look here... for others that felt rather uneasy about it.
Waiting for a better time to upgrade seems like a good idea.

As Sid just started to rumble again, it might be a good idea to wait with further d-u's at least a couple of days. There are so many things heading to sid, there must be breakages. Just be patient...

I just did a dist upgrade and I was not paying attention to what was going to be done so it remove xserver on me. I tried to reinstall the previous version but it said it couldn't find that version. Does anyone know how to restore to the previous version.

Thanks

I've always felt that patience was the best management tool in the box. Of course, asking people who are running sid and want cutting edge to be patient is akin to shoveling sand against the tide. Smile

You can use squeeze repo to get older version of xserver, since it's not far away from what we had before this xorg transition.
