X.Org 7

If you're using Debian unstable on powerpc and haven't done your update today yet, might I suggest you hold off on that for a few days?

apr 13 09:14:28 <Yoe>	xorg 7 also seriuosly messed up fonts
apr 13 09:14:48 <Yoe>	"display" from imagemagick doesn't work anymore, and neither does rxvt-unicode
apr 13 09:15:02 <Yoe>	so how am I supposed to do *anything* useful, now? ;)
apr 13 09:15:04 <simonrvn>	i've been using 7 from experimental, so i had to change my fontpath in xorg.conf
apr 13 09:15:10 <simonrvn>	was
apr 13 09:15:19 <Yoe>	oh?
apr 13 09:15:36 <simonrvn>	/usr/share/fonts/X11
apr 13 09:15:39 <Yoe>	is that documented somewhere?
apr 13 09:15:42 <Yoe>	ah
apr 13 09:15:55 <simonrvn>	might be, not sure
apr 13 09:16:16 <Yoe>	hmm
apr 13 09:16:16 <simonrvn>	though don't remove the old ones, add those, since some of the packages still use the old path
apr 13 09:16:26 <Yoe>	well, not here, aparently
apr 13 09:16:36 <Yoe>	my FontPaths all point to /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc,
apr 13 09:16:37 <simonrvn>	if it is, either BTS or one of the READMEs
apr 13 09:16:44 <Yoe>	s/misc//
apr 13 09:17:06 <Yoe>	and /usr/lib/X11/fonts is a symlink to '../../share/fonts/X11'
apr 13 09:17:11 <Yoe>	which does not exist.
apr 13 09:17:27 <ejka>	Yoe: dpkg -l xfonts-base
apr 13 09:17:41 <Yoe>	that's installed
apr 13 09:17:53 <Yoe>	... but still the 6.9.0 version
apr 13 09:17:53 <ejka>	Yoe: version
apr 13 09:18:04 <simonrvn>	l /usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4.1K 2006-04-11 00:32 charB08.pcf.gz ....
apr 13 09:18:41 <Yoe>	ah
apr 13 09:18:51 <Yoe>	xfonts-base depends on xfonts-utils, which isn't available (yet)
apr 13 09:18:59 <Yoe>	so I s'ppose I'll need to wait another day
apr 13 09:19:02 <Yoe>	(powerpc here)
apr 13 09:20:25 <ejka>	Yoe: for now you can add fontpaths /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/{misc,...}
apr 13 09:20:49 <simonrvn>	xfonts-utils *just came in to ppc today (sid)
apr 13 09:20:55 <simonrvn>	*just*
apr 13 09:21:10 -->	gismo (i=luca@ has joined #debian-devel
apr 13 09:21:37 <Yoe>	right
apr 13 09:21:42 <Yoe>	brb, restart X server
apr 13 09:21:43 Tcl interface unloaded
apr 13 09:21:43 Python interface unloaded

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:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  xserver-xorg: Depends: xserver-xorg-core but it is not installable
                Depends: xserver-xorg-video-all but it is not going to be installed or
                         xserver-xorg-video but it is not installable
                Depends: xserver-xorg-input-all but it is not going to be installed or
                         xserver-xorg-input but it is not installable
E: Broken packages
country:~# apt-get install xserver-xorg-core
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package xserver-xorg-core is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package xserver-xorg-core has no installation candidate
country:~# apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-core
Reading package lists... Done

E: Build-Depends dependency for xserver-xorg-core cannot be satisfied because no available versions of package libxmuu-dev can satisfy version requirements

Believe me, it's painful to have no X server available.

Update: okay, by getting packages from experimental I've been able to get myself a somewhat working X again. Except that xkb doesn't load my modified keymap, which is horrible, and setxkbmap refuses to do anything when I say "setxkbmap wouter" and, on top of that, quits by segfault for good measure. I'm hoping that's fixed in the version that's been uploaded to unstable, but I can't check that—at the time of writing,buildd.debian.org doesn't even have a log file for some of the xorg stuff yet. Though some parts are in the building state at this very moment...
