xserver-xorg-video-unichrome package from Ubuntu
 
Hi,

I am using Debian (4.0) with kernel 2.6.23 with GNOME environment on a VIA CX700 M2 chipset.

For my Xorg graphic driver, I need a package called xserver-xorg-video-unichrome which is there in Ubuntu repository:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty-ba...deo-openchrome
since the debian repos does not have that package.

Now the problem is I am getting the following conflict when I try to install that package:
Code:

debian:~# dpkg -i server-xorg-video-unichrome_0.2.6.99-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
dpkg: considering removing xserver-xorg-video-via in favour of xserver-xorg-video-unichrome ...
dpkg: no, cannot remove xserver-xorg-video-via (--auto-deconfigure will help):
 xserver-xorg-video-all depends on xserver-xorg-video-via
  xserver-xorg-video-via is to be removed.
dpkg: regarding xserver-xorg-video-unichrome_0.2.6.99-0ubuntu1_i386.deb containing xserver-xorg-video-unichrome:
 xserver-xorg-video-unichrome conflicts with xserver-xorg-video-via

 xserver-xorg-video-unichrome_0.2.6.99-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

debian:~# dpkg --purge xserver-xorg-video-via

dpkg: error processing xserver-xorg-video-via (--purge):

Errors were encountered while processing:
 xserver-xorg-video-via
debian:~#

How can I install the package from Ubuntu?

Thanks

The package conflicts with xserver-xorg-video-via and needs to uninstall it first, but it can't because xserver-xorg-video-all is holding it back. But video-all is just a metapackage that installs all the video drivers at once. It's safe to remove it so that you can install or uninstall the various driver packages individually.

So just remove the video-all and video-via packages first and then try installing the unichrome package again.

Now whether that's the only problem, or whether the ubuntu package will actually work on your system is another question.

I had a few problems getting it to work but eventually i forced it in there only to have it draw 3d things incorrectly.

i.e. GLX Gears showing up as flat lines with color all the way across my screen, killing the program and dragging a window over the lines gets rid of em but yeah... weird.

And for whatever reason I cant seem to make OpenChrome drivers compile properly, not sure if I'm just too mentally retarded or what.

From where did you install the package? From Ubuntu repo?

Go to http://www.viaarena.com/ and you will find instructions how to compile.

The box is just so cluttered, ima just nuke it and start from scratch.

This thing has gdm and kdm, xfree86 transitionals and xorg, drivers from xorg-video-via and openchrome and some of viaarena's all mashed together.

its just one big mess :P
