just for the record, in a nvidia system, the upgrade looks like this
Code: Select all
The following packages will be REMOVED:
libgl1-nvidia-alternatives libgl1-nvidia-glx nvidia-glx
The following packages will be upgraded:
libgl1-mesa-dev libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx libglu1-mesa mesa-common-dev
7 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 3 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 19.6 MB of archives.
After this operation, 45.6 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
we should wait for a better day to update
If we are running the Nvidia driver do we even need any of the mesa stuff?
I just locked all the mesa related packages as "thomasmc" suggested. I was then able to update the
"xserver-common (2:1.10.2-1+wheezy1) to 2:1.10.2-2".
"xserver-xorg-core (2:1.10.2-1+wheezy1) to 2:1.10.2-2"
would not upgrade until (libgl1-mesa-dri) was removed, so I went ahead and chanced a removal of "libgl1-mesa-dri", and all is fine.
I am thinking its ok to remove ALL mesa related packages, but will leave them locked until I am sure.
This would presumably stop future "mesa--Nvidia" breakages.
Anyone have any ideas on this?
