Problem upgrading X
Once again, I'm having problems upgrading X in potato to the version
in woody (4.0.3). Originally I was having problems with the thing of
linking /etc/X11/X to /usr/X11R6/bin/Xfree86. (because the Xfree86
there.) I was told that I probably needed to install xserver-xfree86.
This was indeed correct, but now I'm getting an error when I try to
install it. I run "apt-get install xserver-xfree86", and this is what
Setting up xserver-xfree86 (4.0.3-4) ...
dpkg: error processing xserver-xfree86 (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of
task-x-window-system-core depends on xserver-xfree86; however:
Package xserver-xfree86 is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing task-x-window-system-core (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
After this, it just dumps me back out at my shell. I tried to also
the task-x-window-system-core, but that depends on this package. So
feelin' kind of stuck. If anyone could toss me a suggestion or two to
gnaw on with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.
