Default Bug report

Just curious,

do I need to file a bug report cause the dependency of fglrx drive and xserver?

I guess they notice, so they removed fglrx driver from testing.

How do people survive without fglrx driver.

I failed to downgrade the xserver, so I degraded myself watching films lots. Feel terribly bad at the end of day.

I feel tomorrow can't pass like this way.
I'm kind of rely on this computer, just so familiar with it. The desktop not armed to work. And I don't want to use it to work.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Best regards,

Lina

I just refuse xorg upgrade until I can keep fglrx, which I need for dual
screen configuration.

No, see <http://bugs.debian.org/639875>.

Last comment on that bug:

Yes.


How do people survive without fglrx driver.


As already hinted at, I think there are two ways:

1) Use the free driver.
2) Be more careful with upgrades.

As I remember, problems with fglrx happen quite often when there are new
upgrades to other packages. Sometimes the new version is not supported
by fglrx, at other times it is because debian does not wait to ensure
that fglrx is never broken.



Thanks for any suggestions.


For now: I do not know.

For the future: Do one of the aove. If the free driver does not work for
your needs, note what every upgrade will do, before you allow it to do
so. I use aptitude for upgrades, so I get a list of the changes, and get
to interactively decide what to do when there is a conflict.



Regards

Johan

Yeah, before I was so careless during upgrading, barely looked at which packages exactly are upgrading.

Recent I tried hard to downgrade xserver and xorg, I can't say it's frustrating, but indeed it's very.

Changing what for what ?

I use the fglrx-driver package which is not compatible with latest xorg packeges. I do not see any other package giving me the fglrx driver.

Now I use the Radeon driver instead of fglrx.
The configuration is the same as that used, I only changed a driver on
the other.
