For some reason (having used
xorg-edgers in the past might be part of that), I still have a very old X server installed:
xorg 7.6+7ubuntu7.1 xserver-xorg-core 1.10.4-1ubuntu4.2 xserver-xorg-video-intel 2.16.0+git20111011.823a4272-0ubuntu0sarvatt~natty
when I try
aptitude wants to remove 255 packages first (
xserver-xorg-video-* to name a few)
Is there a way to update packages forcing Ubuntu to ignore any dependencies it might think that could theoretically be violated?
On a RPM-based system, I'd use
rpm --force --nodeps
Note: I already removed the xorg-edgers ppa.
Note 2: I'm trying to upgrade with
aptitude safe-upgrade and
