Re: MX-17.1: Could not install "libx11-dev" due to upgraded "libxcb1"

I can't reproduce the issue on standard MX with the antiX repos enabled--libx11-dev installs just fine. The OP had something else going on, which is why I requested "inxi -r" (no response, though).

@ mike lovin

ok anti, then what is your suggestion for a system with 2 init systems?

Maybe it's even better to purge the package and reinstall it later. Or, what to do with this crutch? ;)
