Xserver-Xorg (SOLVED)

Postby andrew5859 on Mon Jan 23, 2012 10:08 pm

I have a question for anyone:

Does anyone have issues with updating xserver-xorg. The reason I ask is because I go to update these on my laptop and I am having major dependency issues, I can't seem to update them.....any help would be greatly appreciated.....cheers

No issues here; all up-to-date. First thing I'd check: viewtopic.php?f=190&t=86767&start=80#p520622

hi andrew,
first of all i would make sure the system is updated
150 upgraded, 6 newly installed, 0 to remove and 34 not upgraded.
you have 156 pkgs waiting to be updated (of course as this is sid nasty things can happen in the way :D )
after that i would check again with another dist-upgrade to see if the xorg pkgs would update or not;
if they don't update after all this, can you please give us the output of
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg
and
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
but only after you try the other steps, otherwise the output might be misleading

Code: Select all
andrew@lmde:~$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core

It looks like you still have the libpixman packages which come with LMDE, ported from Ubuntu, installed. At this point, those packages are somewhat outdated and newer Xorgs require newer versions of this library, which should be in the Debian Sid repos. If you could post the contents of your /etc/apt/preferences file, I think you'll confirm my suspicion that the Mint repo currently has a higher priority than the Debian repos, preventing the newer libpixman from being installed.

Edit: Alternately, you could, from the command line, run
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy libpixman-1-0
to see if the Mint version of this package has priority over Sid versions.

yes, gavinhc, you are spot-on on the issue; it's still (and always) the old libpixman issue;

one way to get around that is (momentary) comment out the mint repo and do a full D-U then enable it again after all the pkgs are updated.

Hello gavinhc:

I did the command in terminal and got this result:

Code: Select all
andrew@lmde:~$ apt-cache policy libpixman-1-0
libpixman-1-0:
  Installed: 0.20.2-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 0.20.2-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
     0.24.2-1 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid/main i386 Packages
 *** 0.20.2-0ubuntu1 0
        700 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/upstream i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
andrew@lmde:~$


What exactly do I need to do in order to get this fixed and move on to newer things....thank you in advance....cheers


P.S. ; Just to let you know, I did an experiment going through various combinations of repo sets, and everything seems to revolve around the Sid repositories....everything else says that the files are up to date or doesn't show up at all...

Would it be posible to take out the libpixman 1.0 file and try to DU from there, or would that in turn mess things up even worse.

Here's my preferences list:


Code: Select all
Package: *
Pin: release o=linuxmint
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.linuxmint.com
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: 500


Package: *
Pin: origin tridex.net
Pin-Priority: 700


From what I can tell, Debian is set at a lower level of priority than the rest....should I reset that to 700 as well and see what happens

andrew,
this is what you have:
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free
deb http://tridex.net/repo/debian/ wheezy main

make it look like like this:
Code: Select all
# deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free
deb http://tridex.net/repo/debian/ wheezy main

do a full DU and then go back to the first set of repos ( you see the # it disables the repo in the sources.list, so it doesn't read it)
