So why can't you update?
I ask because I've installed via libranet and knoppix (as well as the
usual debian installer), and I haven't had this problem.
Sure, knoppix jumped the gun on packageing X 4.3 and I had a couple
minor problems with it, but it was easily fixed. Further the
dist-upgrade to sid was a little bumpy, but thats to be expected anyhow.
Are you saying that you cant upgrade to stable? Just wondering what the
I've known people running testing who've backed out to stable, so there
must be a way you can 'get back on track' so to speak. Then again, your
definition of reasonable may differ from mine.
