Default dist-upgrade from sarge to etch - package dependencies issues

Hi,
I am trying to upgrade my distribution from sarge to
etch.

Having upgraded successfully the 2.4 kernel to 2.6, I
update my sources.list (change sarge to stable, so I
get etch) and I run aptitude upgrade. Then ...

aptitude dist-upgrade

which unfortunately gives me these errors:

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree
Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
Reading task descriptions... Done
Some packages had unmet dependencies. 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.
(---I am not using an unstable distribution---)
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xlibmesa-gl: Depends: xfree86-common but it is not
installable
Conflicts: libgl1 which is a virtual
package.
xlibmesa-glu: Depends: xfree86-common but it is not
installable
Conflicts: libglu1 which is a virtual
package.
libglu1-mesa: Conflicts: libglu1 which is a virtual
package.
libfam0c102: Conflicts: libfam0 but 2.7.0-12 is to
be installed.
libgl1-mesa-glx: Conflicts: libgl1 which is a
virtual package.

I give you the results of dkpg -l for the above
packages:

myusername@myPC:~$ dpkg -l xfree86-common | grep ii
ii xfree86-common 4.3.0.dfsg.1-1 X Window System
(XFree86) infrastructure

myusername@myPC:~$ dpkg -l libgl1 | grep libgl1
un libgl1 <none> (no description
available)

myusername@myPC:~$ dpkg -l libglu1 | grep libglu1
un libglu1 <none> (no description
available)

myusername@myPC:~$ dpkg -l libfam0 | grep libfam0
un libfam0 <none> (no description
available)

I have spend a few hours on this and I would
appreciate any help to resolve it and go ahead with my
dist-upgrade.
Thank you
D.

You need aptitude update so that aptitude knows the new versions of
everything.

Also, I use aptitude interactively, and tell it (in the menus) not to
treat recommends as strong dependancies.

Also, I hope you have a solid and tested backup. It _should_ go
smoothly, but I had libc die (killed the whole system) on one of my
boxes during the transistion.

Good luck.

Doug.

Are you following the upgrade procedure that is outlined in Etch's
release notes?

Do you run "aptitude update" before that?

Please post the output of these two commands:

apt-cache policy xlibmesa-gl xlibmesa-glu libglu1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx

aptitude search '~i~Dlibfam0c102'

Yes. I am doing exactly what the release notes say.
That's the link I read.

Yes. I make sure I set my sources.list to get sarge
packages and I update.

Hmm, that seems normal to me. The new versions of both xlibmesa-gl and
xlibmesa-glu are transitional packages to smooth the upgrade from Sarge
to Etch, therefore I do not immediately understand how they can cause
problems for you.

Again, libfam0c102 on Etch is a transitional package and nothing on your
present system seems to depend on it; I am puzzled why aptitude is
bothered by it.

A common problem for Sarge-Etch transitions is the presence of
non-Debian packages with dependencies that do not fit in the overall
upgrade scheme (Sarge-backports or pre-Sarge packages can also cause
trouble). Check for non-Debian packages on your system by running:

aptitude search '~i!~Odebian'
