SOLVED -- Caution -- Video drivers to be removed
« on: 2022/02/09, 21:48:50 »
Just now, I am seeing this output from
Code: [Select]
# apt full-upgrade
Code: [Select]
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
  nvidia-driver-bin
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  nvidia-driver xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-nvidia xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-vesa

This machine uses nvidia graphics, so I think I'll wait for more information.

Yes, new Xorg came and not all xserver-xorg-* stuff rebuild yet. Waiting some time is the way to go ;)

For the benefit of others ---

As of today, I can
Code: [Select]
apt upgrade and all the new xserver-xxx packages are held back, nothing is removed, and all the other upgrades are installed.

I'm happy to report that I can now mark this issue solved. For the new xserver-xxx packages to be installable, you need to install nvidia-driver ver. 510.47.03-0~siduction2 from the siduction/extra experimental repo. Once again, thanks to the siduction devs for taking care of us!

Thanks for that, Dibl. Seems it's all clear for a normal full upgrade now.
