apt-get dist-upgrade problem (havnt done it in a while...)
I havn't apt-get upgrade and dist-upgraded in a while. So, I needed to upgrade tons of packages.
I did this:
dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/packagename_i386.deb then dpkg --configure -a and then chose default which is n or o.
This almost solved the problem.
apt-get install gimp-perl

How do I install gimp-perl without this big mess??
