Angry XFree86 xfonts-scalable errors


I am running XFree86 Version 4.4.0 on Debian with 2.6.3 kernel. I cannot install anything using apt without getting this error. Everything I try to install says it is going to remove xfonts-scalable, and using "apt-get remove xfonts-scalable" doesn't work either.

OK. I uncommented my testing sources in my sources.list and did an "apt-get dist-upgrade" Now I get some different error (which, by the way, is the original error I was getting before I started tinkering with stuff)
