Bug#640814: nvidia-glx not installable
and at debian.org
Wed Sep 7 16:11:09 UTC 2011
while updating my sid system a few hours ago I noticed something went
wrong on reboot. My screen went black and no actions could be taken. I
rebooted on safe mode and tweaked a bit my xorg.conf (re-generated it
through Xorg -configure), that trick usually made everything working
correctly on the next boot.
The problem was still there, I logged back on a root shell and noticed
there were problems with the 'xserver-xorg-video-nvidia' package. I
then went to remove nvidia-kernel-dkms bits and had back my desktop.
Trying to manually install the above package takes me to:
"The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xserver-xorg-video-nvidia : Depends: xorg-video-abi-10 but it's not
installable or xorg-video-abi-8 but it's not installable or
xorg-video-abi-6.0 but it's not installable
E: Damaged Packages"
I then went to check which package produced those binary files and the
result was: 'xserver-xorg-core'. Packages should never directly depend
on virtual packages. Can you please get rid of that and explain me
what's going on with the 'xserver-xorg-video-nvidia' package?
Thanks in advance,
