Deep in the middle of the xorg upgrade on my AMD-64. Actually, I'm
probably only barely started.
I went ahead and started to upgrade anyway. Following directions on
the wiki page, I first upgraded x11-common, and was told the upgrade
failed; specifically because the symbolic link /usr/include/X11
did not exist.
This was while processing
SHould I create this link manually? Or will that break the package
(whatever it is) that is *supposed* to have installed it?
If so, where should it point?
