I took the updates this morning for sid and not gnome shell when I try and install it say it has broken packages. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem.

That is the risk you have while running Sid. I am experiencing the same problem. Just be patient and everything we work out in a few days. You can use gnome classic. I use fluxbox so no worries for me.

what i do -
Code: Select all
aptitude update

then to see what's gonna happen...
Code: Select all
aptitude -s full-upgrade

if it tells me that it's not going to break, I remove the -s (simulate) and do the upgrade.
If it tells me it's going to break, I try
Code: Select all
aptitude -s upgrade


if there's no predicted breakage I do the upgrade, if there is, I hold off...

I also have apt-list bugs installed..

Oh I was not in a hurry by no means. Just curious if anyone had come up with a solution. Todays updates allowed me to reinstall shell and gnome which gave me back gnome 3 interface. I know lots of people do not like it but I do so any way it is back working
