I suggest you to search for a backports repository - You can find some


There is no xorg 7.0 backport yet, and I fear it will not be easy to
add one (as the Debian xorg 7.0 introduced _major_ packaging changes,
if somebody puts up a backport it will probably be completely made
from scratch to behave as close as xfree 4.3 as possible).
