Pardon the monologue, but I'm stuck about halfway through this
upgrade. I figured out that I can go to
http://people.debian.org/~branden and select a mirror site for the new
.debs, and put that in my /etc/apt/sources.list. So aptitude now
shows the 4.2 packages for x-window-system and x-window-system-core.
I selected them for download/installation, did it, and got some
messages saying the new stuff is being installed. aptitude shows
4.2.0-0pre1v1 as the currently installed versions of those packages.
However, nothing seems to have changed! I exited X and restarted, and
/var/log/XFree86.0.log still prints 4.1.0-17 as the version, and the
date on the file /usr/X11R6/bin/X is still April 18... I tried
reinstalling a couple of times, to no avail.
Any clues appreciated! Thanks in advance :)
