i wasn't aware sid was going to get 4.6, but i'm still tired of having to wait an entire year before getting something recent, and so i'm probably going to have to wait a full year when 4.7 or 4.8 comes out.
the problem with xorg is it uninstalled itself due to a broken package issue. it simply refuses to install because it wants to uninstall these other things, which will uninstall other dependencies of xorg so its just a loop of an issue. i'm tired of debian doing stuff like this, so i'm preparing to switch to arch right now. i'll try updating apt-get one more time and see if i can reinstall xorg when arch is done downloading and when i'm done copying everything.
