After activating experimental Debian repos, go init 3 and:
      Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install xserver-xorg-core -t experimental
apt-get dist-upgrade
init 5 && exit

Users of the Nvidia graphics cards with the proprietary "nvidia" driver, add before init 5:
      Code:
apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-glx -t experimental

Greetings,
Chris

Just wanted to comment here... the obvious.
to dist-upgrade on what is truly a developmental Operating System is something of a serious matter.
Some people become complacent and too relaxed it seems. A common human trait involving trust in a routine.
Well it is not a good idea to just accept everything at face value when the words remove is used...
especially when it involves something like the x-server.
For me it is a matter of discipline to read what is on the screen, and to be patient, if all is not a go or seems to be a problem. aptosid is an excellent distro and the work it must entail should be appreciated by those who use it.
I have been looking at some of the comments here and it is astonishing to me that some will DU without actually reading what is about to happen. For something to be removed without some kind of replacement included in the list of things that will happen is rather blunt truth. It will do it.
It IS a good thing to read what will happen, and commit to it with some realization that advanced, prototype, experimental mean what they imply.

Thanks

Use the new one, this might have more effort. An simple

apt-get install xserver-xorg -t experimental

should fix that. You might have a look at the german forum too. Running in the same problem. Wink

But this was only an X-server, who cares.

Thanks for all the tips to fix this issue. I ended up installing the xserver from squeeze. I am back up and running now.

Repeating the experience of ankscorekL
      Code:

root@newton:/home/tim# apt-get -t experimental install xserver-xorg-core
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xserver-xorg-core : Breaks: xserver-xorg-input-7
                     Breaks: xserver-xorg-video-6
 xserver-xorg-input-evdev : Depends: xorg-input-abi-7.0
 xserver-xorg-input-synaptics : Depends: xorg-input-abi-7.0
 xserver-xorg-video-apm : Depends: xorg-video-abi-6.0
.

here is my dump


      Code:
root@siduxbox31m:/home/skal# apt-get -t experimental install xserver-xorg-core
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xserver-xorg-core : Depends: xserver-xorg but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Like a couple of other folks I tried the above mentioned solution from Slam.

However, reinstalling nvidia-glx didn't work for me.

Perhaps, there have been even further changes since Slam posted, it's possible.

So I went out on a limb and installed nvidia-glx from experimental.

After running an 'apt-get update', that is. Wink

      Code:
apt-get install -t experimental nvidia-glx


From there back into run level 5, as per Slam's post.

My thanks to Slam for his offering as it got me most of the way there.

All is now fine and hunky dory for me.

Cheers.

I had the same problem with xorg removal and it was solved after I reinstalled with squeeze repositories. However, if I try to d-u apt-get still suggests to remove xorg (and openoffice).

I suppose I have to wait for a few days before doing a d-u. Am I right ?

For all you want to know what was went wrong:
