I've looked through the dependencies and I think xlib6 should be installed
first. Turns out there is something called "xlib" that is blocking an
easy upgrade. I get the following few errors:
dpkg: considering removing xlib in favour of xlib6 ...
dpkg: no, cannot remove xlib (--auto-deconfigure will help):
gwm depends on xlib (>= 3.1.2-4)
xlib is to be removed.
dpkg: regarding xlib6_3.2-1.deb containing xlib6:
xlib6 conflicts with elf-x11r6lib
xlib provides elf-x11r6lib and is installed.
dpkg: error processing xlib6_3.2-1.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing xlib6
Errors were encountered while processing:
I don't know much about dpkg. I've tried using
"dpkg -purge --force-depends xlib" followed by the same install above. I
was able to install xlib6 this way but nothing worked.
So, how do I get over this first hump?
