Question Cannot Install X Server


I am new to Linux and recently installed Debian 5.0.3 to my HP Pavilion dv4 and. I am having a difficult time installing the X11 packages from Aptitude. It seems that I cannot install any packages from Aptitude correctly or fully. If anyone knows what I am doing wrong or how I can fix the situation it would be greatly appreciated.

There is a meta-package known as gnome-desktop-environment -- I would suggest installing that instead of simply X11 unless you are out to accomplish a particular feat and you know what you're after.

Please provide the output of the following commands.

Code:
sudo aptitude clean
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude -v install gnome-desktop-environment
