    I'm trying to install xserver from git now. Hello, dependency hell!

      I'm having this very same issue using Debian Sid.

      This are my packages:

      xserver-xorg-core:
      Instalado: 2:1.4.99.906-1
      Candidato: 2:1.4.99.906-1
      Tabela de versão:
      *** 2:1.4.99.906-1 0
      1 http://ftp.debian.org experimental/main Packages
      100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

      libgl1-mesa-dri:
      Instalado: 7.1-1
      Candidato: 7.1-1
      Tabela de versão:
      *** 7.1-1 0
      1 http://ftp.debian.org experimental/main Packages
      100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

      did anyone workaround this issue?

      Please let me know.

        You must use xserver from git (or wait for final 1.5 release) with Mesa-7.1 or use 7.1 RC3 with xserver-1.4.99.906.

          This is not true.
          The actual version of xserver-xorg-core in experimental is
          2:1.4.99.906-2 and work without problem with mesa 7.1 final.

            Debian is really fast with those patched packages.

              Indeed, I just checked on this site and it says 2:1.4.99.906-2 as the newest version.

              But, I can not get this package! Only 2:1.4.99.906-1.

              Would you mind to share your experimental repositories with us?

              Thanks for reading.

                Nevermind, I just noticed that there is no 2:1.4.99.906-2 package to amd64 SID.

                Architecture Version Package Size Installed Size Files

                amd64 2:1.4.99.906-1 2,541.9 kB 5624 kB no current information

                  On R500 use the radeon (git master), NOT the radeonhd driver.
