Try running dpkg with force-overwrite option (it was the default in old
version and is no more which caused some problems during the transitions
from X 3.3.6 -> X 4.0.2) ... To do this, use :
dpkg --force-overwrite --install xlibs_4.0.2-1_i386.deb
This problem should disapear when version of packages compiled with the
new version of X get into woody ...
Hope this help
