Hi!
my last update aptosid (i686) deleted the nvidia-glx driver, but to my attempt to reinstall the package, I get the message:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
nvidia-glx: Depends: xorg-video-abi-6.0 but it is not installable or xserver-xorg-core (<2:1.7.7) but it is to be installed
The driver nvidia-glx update may be present in a repository that does not know or has not been updated yet?

I noticed the nvidia-glx driver wanting to be removed again today. Yesterday it wanted to be upgraded. So I am not sure if something might have changed to cause this.

I am using AMD64.

I have read that post. I can try to install the version in experimental. But if you notice that the user finotti mentioned a new version came in and it suggested to upgrade instead of remove. So I was wondering why it is asking to remove it again if a new version was suggested to upgrade.

Maybe the new nvidia-glx is not yet in the sid repositories. Thus you have the choice to wait or to use the experimental nvidia-glx package which works fine.

The above post by slam from this thread http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=759

Explains the process quite well.

Due to the large number of changes with xorg that came down recently there were some problems with the version in the sid repos.

One of those being that the proprietory nvidia-glx drivers failed after a d-u.

My experience with following slam's advice is that the driver in experimental works really well.

In fact my system is notably more responsive than with the old driver.

Cheers.

except, now you don't need the line of
apt-get install xserver-xorg-core -t experimental
before dist-upgrade. :)

SOLVED! Thanks for the detailed answer. After activating the experimental Debian repos (/ etc / apt / sources.list.d), I placed the code shown and everything is settled. Thanks again.
Salvo.

I don't get it.

I have this problem as well. I added debian experimental repos (experimental contrib non-free, etc...). apt-cache policy for nvidia-glx shows the 260.xxx version in experimental, 195.xx in sid, and xserver-xorg-core is at 1.9.x version. But when I try to install nvidia-glx it wants xserver 1.7.x which doesn't make any sense. Why isn't nvidia-glx depending on the 1.9.x xserver? Thanks for any help.

nvidia-glx from experimental is not compatible with the recent xserver anymore.

So which nvidia driver package is compatible with sid and/or experimental? I can't get it installed at all because of xserver 1.9.x.

As you can read here multiple in this forum, on frickelplatz, there is a compatible driver.

for mocha:
deb http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ sid main contrib non-free

----

when I tried to install from experimental (and worked)
also, nvidia-glx/experimental had
"xorg-video-abi-8.0 | xorg-video-abi-6.0 | xserver-xorg-core (<< 2:1.7.7)"
in Depends section. I was fooled with "<< 2:1.7.7".
My problem, was that in my debian.list, non-free for sid was not active.

Then I had error message, that dependencies are not satisfied.
but when I activated non-free on sid, too. dependencies were satisfied. (and worked)
I understood that some package on sid repository satisfied "xorg-video-abi-8.0",
but yet I don't know how. (edit: it seems now I know :)

(hmmm, it must be something related to this:
http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-x@li ... 04798.html
so till this version of xserver-xorg entered, it was satisfied? Then isn't this a regression?

edit: hmmm, current xserver-xorg-core still
Provides: xorg-input-abi-11, xorg-video-abi-8
so... the driver on experimental still should work...)

      Code:
towo:Defiant> LANG=C apt-get -t experimental -s install nvidia-glx
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt-get needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

E: Broken packages


xorg-video-abi-8.0 != xorg-video-abi-8
