Re: Segmentation Fault w/ XF86Setup
I just tried to upgrade my "potato" box with
XFree86 from "unstable." Bad idea?
This yields Segmentation Fault when I run XF86Setup.
Mildly chaotic "update" process, since I was
a bit confused about the Deb packages to get.
I started with:
.. at which point XF86Setup still ran, but
showed no video boards to select from. Then
I went and got:
That is version 3.3.6-39
libgnome-perl // and finally:
.. which is probably where I should have
You have a mixture of 3.3.6 and 4.1 packages on your system
So my questions are:
1. Was it dumb to install XF86 4.1 on
top of a 2.2r3 base (kernel 2.2.18pre21) ?
No but the wrong way of doing. Looks like you didn't even have a look
on the packeges numbers.
2. Is it possible that XF86Setup itself was
somehow not updated?
XF86Setup is for 3.3.x
4. What's the minimim base for running
XF86 version 4.1.0-9? Or is "apt-get"
supposed to deal with such dependencies?
apt-get is your choice. Go to http://people.debian.org/~bunk/ and
read the instructions on how to install XF4 on potato with apt-get.
5. Suggestions on where to go from here...
Whew! Many thanks in advance. I'm way over
my head here, I guess <g>.
