Bug#345396: xserver-xorg: Conflicts nvidia-glx ... in other words: older hardware isnt supported anymore
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've read #338715, and I know its nvidias fault, but conflicting with
older nvidia-glx packages is NOT an acceptable solution for me.
I use an older nvidia GeForce Graphics-Board, which is only supported up
to driver version 7174. See http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html
Until now I had no problems with that. But now I have to decide if I
want to use the old driver and so cant upgrade the xserver-xorg package,
or to use the free nv driver for this card and miss the hardware-
acceleration while upgrading xserver-xorg to 6.9.0.dfsg.1-1 and further.
Please remove the "Conflicts: nvidia-glx <= 1.0.7174-4"
and use the divert-solution as mentioned in #338715. Thanks.
have a good start in 2006.
