    Do you want me to be honest? Don’t use Ximian. Their packaging is bad and conflicts with everything else known to man. I only unbroke my system 3 months after removing the Ximian stuff.

    Thats the problem with using task packages.

    task-x-window-system depends on xdm, ximian-gnome I assume depends on gdm, xdm and gdm cannot be installed at the same time (it doesn’t make sense to), so therefore task-x-window-system and ximian-gnome cannot be installed at the same time.

    Your best bet is to remove task-x-window-system, it’s only a meta package anyway, and not doing anything important.

    The ximian-gnome package being broken is another problem. I tend to agree with the post above about steering clear of the ximian packages, but the ones in stable are supposed to work ok.
