xfree86 4.3 requires freetype 2.1.3, which conflicts with fontconfig in
the backport. fontconfig is required by libpango1.0-0 and pango is
required by gtk+2.0 and everything else depends on that. So nothing
If you have an up to date xfree86 4.3 with freetype 2.1.3 and
fontconfig, png, and xft2 from the below sources, you will be able to
install gnome2.2 after this evening.
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/xfree86/i386/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/fontconfig/i386/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/xft/i386/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/freetype/i386/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/libpng/i386/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/debconf/i386/ ./
gnome2.2 will install. I fixed a dependency in pango to allow this.
