The problem is: why do I have to install, for instance,  gcc-4.9-base
gcc-4.9-base:i386  (I don't want to compile anything...)

why do I have to install these xserver:

  xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-input-mouse
  xserver-xorg-input-synaptics xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse
  xserver-xorg-input-wacom xserver-xorg-video-all xserver-xorg-video-ati
  xserver-xorg-video-cirrus xserver-xorg-video-fbdev
xserver-xorg-video-intel
  xserver-xorg-video-mach64 xserver-xorg-video-mga
  xserver-xorg-video-modesetting xserver-xorg-video-neomagic
  xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-video-nvidia
  xserver-xorg-video-openchrome xserver-xorg-video-r128
  xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-savage
  xserver-xorg-video-siliconmotion xserver-xorg-video-sisusb
  xserver-xorg-video-tdfx xserver-xorg-video-trident
xserver-xorg-video-vesa
  xserver-xorg-video-vmware

I have an nvidia graphic card, so, if needed "nouveau" but I use the
proprietary driver...

Why should I install systemd?

etc. etc.

I just wanted to work with gthumb, but it was broken by a preceeding
update....

I waste more time to recover a system than to work....
