I finally got around to updating my sources.list file and downloaded the new 
XFree86. During the install I got an error stating that two versions of 
XFree86-xls existed and it couldn't proceed. I was reading through the 
apt-get help and it had a lot of info, but I don't know how to proceed. I 
tried to remove, I got the same error. I tried to autoclean and got the same 
error. Any idea how to proceed?
