Bug Description

Once I was updating my xubuntu drapper 6.06 to edgy 6.10 the process did not end succesfully: It generated three log at /var/log/dist-upgrade/
apt.log main.log term.log

Edit: Sorry, here are the files. :)

[summary was: System instable: 3 log in /var/log/dist-upgrade]

I saw these lines in apt.log:
"Package xubuntu-desktop has broken dep on xorg
  Considering xorg 1 as a solution to xubuntu-desktop 0
  Removing xubuntu-desktop rather than change xorg"

so I took the liberty to change the summary of the bug.

ok can you install xorg by running "sudo apt-get install xorg" does it install xorg?

Not that way, it says xorg is already install. I run "sudo apt-get install xorg --reinstall" and xorg was reinstalled, but when I rebooted the system, xfce didn't work. Just typing "alt+F1" Firefox beta 2 run perfectly, nothing else. The only way to get out from xfce is typing "ctrl+alt+BkSp" And it lets me get in gnome session.

This turned out to be a update-grub bug.

Changed in linux-source-2.6.17:
assignee: nobody → mvo
status: Confirmed → In Progress

This is fixed with the upload of grub 0.97-11ubuntu13. There were two places were update-grub still wrote to stdout, confusing debconf and make the postinst fail.

Changed in grub:
status: In Progress → Fix Released
