View Full Version : [ubuntu] xkeyboard-config error when upgrading from Dapper to Hardy

May 6th, 2008, 12:29 AM
Unfortunately, I encountered the following problem when upgrading from Dapper LTS to Hardy LTS:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/xkb-data_1.1~cvs.20080104.1-1ubuntu6_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/etc/X11/xkb/types.dir', which is also in package xkeyboard-config

I found the solution from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xkeyboard-config/+bug/213566/comments/5:

This bug was fixed in the package xkeyboard-config - 1.1~cvs.20080104.1-1ubuntu5

xkeyboard-config (1.1~cvs.20080104.1-1ubuntu5) hardy; urgency=low

* preinst:
- when upgrading from hardy, check the conffiles against
xkeyboard-config not xkb-data (was not available back then)
* debian/control:
- add conflicts against old xkeyboard-config to ensure the
upgrade happens in the right order (LP: #213566)

Can someone helps me to solve this? I understand the above statement but don't know how to to it.
