IIRC, there is a conflict because old packages have /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults as a directory, but newer ones have it as a symlink. Since it looks like it is only in conflict with tetex-base, try "apt-get install tetex-base" to upgrade to the newer version. In general, if you get the "trying to overwrite ..." error, this is a bug in one of the packages mentioned if both are at their latest versions, and you should file a bug report. It can be temporarily solved using "dpkg --force-overwrite" IF YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING (i.e. you could mess up your system by doing that). -- Hubert Chan <firstname.lastname@example.org> - http://www.uhoreg.ca/ PGP/GnuPG key: 1024D/124B61FA Fingerprint: 96C5 012F 5F74 A5F7 1FF7 5291 AF29 C719 124B 61FA Key available at wwwkeys.pgp.net.
