First.  Please don't hijack a thread.  Start a new one.

Second, in the case of Debian package, no uninstallation is necessary.
In the case of Xorg, I am not sure (as I don't use it) but most from
source installs can be done over a previous version.  You will need to
read the README, NEWS, and any other release notes with your source.
