Thanks for nice help... very usefull.
Before getting into whats happening.. I'm currently and have been a
bit confused about debian naming/versioning setup.
I thought etch was quite a bit older than squeeze. I thought squeeze
was newer than `lenny'.. have I gotten all backwards?
Getting into the frey with the broken pkgs.. I see apt wanting to
install a whole herd of video drivers.
The following partially installed packages will be configured:
libcompress-zlib-perl libice-dev libsm-dev libxaw7-dev libxmu-dev
libxt-dev perl-doc perl-modules xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core
xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-input-kbd xserver-xorg-input-mouse
xserver-xorg-video-dummy xserver-xorg-video-i128 xserver-xorg-video-i740
7 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 3 to remove and 705 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/6397kB of archives. After unpacking 1487kB will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
