XFree86 4.3 in Woody - Debian

    Default XFree86 4.3 in Woody

    Hi all,

    Whilst trying to see if the Gnome 2.2. backport was conflicting with the
    XFree 4.3 backport that I was already using, I realised that my xlibs
    had been kept back and was still at v4.1.

    So I removed xlibs (and the many dependants), removed the Gnome line
    from my sources.list, did an apt-get update, and apt-get install xlibs.

    And this is my error:
    brain:/home/antgel# apt-get install xlibs
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
    xlibs: Depends: libfontconfig1 (>= 2.1) but it is not installable
    Depends: libfreetype6 (>= 2.1.3-5) but it is not going to be
    installed
    E: Sorry, broken packages

    Here's my sources.list (note only XFree 4.3 isn't commented out, out of
    the unofficial stuff):

    Can anyone give me a hand here? I just hope I don't get a power cut
    while everything's not installed. :)

    Alas. All is lost. I tried to compile xfree86 4.3 on my gnome2.2 woody
    backport, and it requires freetype 2.1.3. Installing this version of
    freetype will prevent semi-offical openoffice.org from being installed
    (but adrian bunk has it) and gnome2.2 backport.

    You _could_ try to install xlibs 4.2.1 from the gnome2.2 backport-- this
    would allow you to use the xfree86 4.3 drivers, semi-official
    openoffice.org and gnome2.2 backport on woody. However, I don't know
    how great it would be to mix xlibs 4.2.1 and the rest of xfree86 at 4.3.

    You may want to try testing-- it has an almost complete gnome2.2 with
    the new freetype and fontconfig. I believe you can get openoffice.org
    on it, and somebody has to have xfree86 4.3 for it too.
