Hey hey,
I just tried to update my system. Admittedly, I probably left it a little too 

Now xorgproto apparently breas a lot of dependencies. This includes dmxproto 
and xproto, which in turn are required by other packages like libgmx or 

It there an "automated" method of dealing with this kind of dependency 
breakage? I dare not try this by hand. I don't know how many other packages 
would be affected by this.

Best wishes and many thanks,
