A great resource is distrowatch.com

They store package information about all the major distributions.

Check them out.

Oh, stank! Is it possible to update it to 4.3.0?? Because I have an ATI Radeon 9000 and need one of these following versions to install the drivers: 4.1.0, 4.2.0, 4.3.0. And the 4.2.0 driver says that it confilicts with the Xfree864.2.1 package
