Re: Xorg 7 on sparc64

One more thing related with this issue.

When I try to install xserver-xorg-video-ati it wants to remove kcontrol, kdesktop, konq-plugins, konqueror, etc. Is this OK (I don't think so). Maybe it has to do with the fact that KDE is being updated the last few days. Anyway, monday in national holiday here in Argentina, so on tuesday things may change. :-D
