Now I see.
xserver-xorg 2:1.9.4-1
Provide: xorg-input-abi-11, xorg-input-abi-11.0, xorg-video-abi-8, xorg-video-abi-8.0

and
xserver-xor 2:1.9.4-2
Provides: xorg-input-abi-11, xorg-video-abi-8

So, naming convantion was in transition, now transition is complete, and
nvidia-glx on experimental is still not transited. thus broken.

frickel's nvidia-glx Depends: ... , xserver-xorg-core, ... so installs.
OK

I'm still having problems. I actually need to install the 96.xx series Nvidia drivers for my hardware, my mistake earlier. When I try to do that I'm getting "depends on xorg-video-abi-6.0, but it's not available". I am trying frickelplatz and experimental to no avail.

As most people with Nvidia cards are probably not aware, the new free and open source driver Nouveau is already enabled in Aptosid kernels, and does work well for most cards and use cases. So, it's time to finally get rid of the closed source malware, and potentially problematic 3rd party repositories. Here is how to do that:

In KDE System Settings turn all desktop effects off. Remove all 3rd party repositories from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. Remove all traces of nvidia in: /etc/default/dmakms, /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and /usr/src/.

      Code:
init 3
apt-get purge ^nvidia* ^libnividia* xserver-xorg-video-nv
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau


Reboot. You are using the free open source Nouveau driver now. Please post any issues you might have with this HowTo.

Greetings,
Chris

I'm well aware of the nouveau driver, but what about my choice to use the binary driver? It still doesn't answer my question about how to install the 96xx driver. Thanks.
