Re: Debain package for X-free86-4.2 or 4.3 ?

I have a Dell with a Radeon Mobility that is happily running Ralf Nolden's backport of X 4.3

from /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ktown.kde.org/~nolden/kde stable main
deb http://ktown.kde.org/~nolden/X11 stable main
deb http://ktown.kde.org/~nolden/Printing stable main

You may be able to get away with only the middle line, but why not run kde 3.1 as well :-]

I'm setting to Debian on a laptop. It has a Radeon Mobility
video system that needs a late version of xfree86, at last
4.2.0.  Can someone point me to the name of an apt package
and the server it's on. Thanks.
