dist-upgrade to woody
Help. <pop>. I wasn't sure which list to send this to, since this is a user
question, but from what I understand, woody is a debian-devel issue. Hopefully
no one kills me for posting to both :)
I have potato installed on my machine. When I upgraded to woody I got gross
problems. First, as I understand it, I did the correct upgrade steps.
- modified sources.list to reflect that I want woody stuff now.
- apt-get update
- apt-get dist-upgrade
I get errors concerning talkd and libpaperg (I'm pretty sure that's what the
second one was called, it deals with paper sizes as I understand it)
That was no problem, I don't use talk anyways, so I removed it.
The big problem is that my X won't work! Whenever I try to run it, I now get an
error saying something like unable to stat file /etc/X11/X.
I poked around google and so far from what I've seen, /etc/X11/X should be a
symlink to /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA. Also the file /etc/X11/Xserver should
contain the lines
/usr/bin/X11/XF86_SVGA and console.
What's everyone's thought on this. Also, why didn't the upgrade set this up
automatically? I would think when it replaced the old version of X it would
have done it.
One last question, why did they take XF86Setup away. I always had problems with
XF86Config, but not with XF86Setup. If worse comes to worse I guess I'll have
to learn the art of XF86Config files (it never works after running the Config
Thanks a lot.
