Comment 15 for bug 614993

The procedure I mentioned earlier in comment #11 to get around it doesn't seem to be optimal. Removing the Breaks: completely from libdrm-nouveau1 left me with xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1:0.0.15 installed after the lucid->maverick upgrade which held back all of the X upgrades and it required a manual sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau/maverick to fix. I couldn't work out a method to test but changing the Breaks: to Conflicts: might fix it?

Jean-Baptiste: That's odd that you only hit it with universe disabled, because I hit the problem on a clean 10.04.1 install with universe enabled. These are essential packages though and I agree its a major problem.
