[Sorry, the system in question is my home system; I'll try to give a
more informative reply from home tonight.]
I'm not sure the correct terminology to use, but if I just try to do
an "upgrade" in aptitude, most of xorg gets marked for upgrading --
but xserver-xorg-video-r128 is marked as "broken" (and this has been
true for ages)... the only way that I can resolve the situation in
aptitude is to not upgrade xorg.
Hmm... I just tried to install xserver-xorg-video-ati at work
(which uses intel graphics, so I didn't have it installed before),
which already has the latest version xorg installed ... and it gives
no dependency problems!
