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.


Thanks mate, you just saved my @ss...

Sure, here it is

I created squeeze.list, as follows

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/squeeze.list
      Code:
#
################
deb http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
#
deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
#
# deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile/ squeeze/volatile main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile/ squeeze/volatile main contrib non-free
#
# deb ftp://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian squeeze/stable-proposed-updates main contrib non-free
# deb-src ftp://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian squeeze/stable-proposed-updates main contrib non-free


I then moved any list file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d (except my newly created squeeze.list). Then

      Code:
sudo init 3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg


Then I restored all list files, and commented every line in squeeze.list, and

      Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


Some xserver-xorg-* packages will be upgraded at this point, don't worry about it; it's ok

Then
      Code:
init 5

After the Upgrade Warnings i can put the old list in
      Code:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/
again and make
      Code:
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
again?
So i will be back on the old route?

two comments.
1) sudo is not the aptosid's way.
login to root (or using su/sux to become root) is the aptosid's way

2) the last "apt-get upgrade" is not necessary, and can be dangerous.

and for Gaston, you don't need to do dist-upgrade, untill the xserver
problem will be fixed.

sudo, as per my knowledge, is not available in aptosid.
And I am not finding out.

32-bit has really nice ffmpeg breakage in stock for you.

on 32-bit, ffmpeg conflict seems just replacing libavfilter0 to libavfilter1, so on my home PC, just
# apt-get install ffmpeg
and letting libavfilter0 be removed, seems OK.

I have been using sudo ever since I started off with sidux Embarassed
So, dpt, sudo is available in aptosid

Is it documented anywhere?
I cannot believe I have I lost such a fundamental change of behaviour...

Yes, you may be right here

We don't use sudo here by default. The reason is mostly that it is hard to configure it correctly (without security problems). With the temporary avoiding of the password-question and the tendency of users to preface everything with sudo (i am always a bit shocked then a read bash tips mentioning 'sudo !!'…) we have decided to not ship it by default. A user is as always free to use it if he or she wants. Its your system in the end…

Regarding the problem itself:
Beside that you should start READING what apt-get says instead of pressing enter all the time, you 'just' need to add squeeze sources and do the recovery xorg installation with the '-t squeeze' flag. At least that is what i told a user on irc yesterday and it worked for him. After that remove squeeze sources again and be happy. Oh, and have i mentioned that you should READ next time what you accept? (If you don't know what APT wants to tell you: Ask - its better to ask before instead of waiting until it is too late)

My, my... Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed...

Dear fellow forum members, let me remind you that, no matter who or what you are, the first thing you must do is be polite.

If you can't do that, the next best thing to do is 'just' don't be at all

Have fun...

Sorry, I could have been misunderstood: RTBM in the aptosid community means Read The Bluewater Manual. I wouldn't dare being rude with you.
And I don't think the other members of the forum lacked politeness in this thread... Confused
