Broken packages after reinstalling lenny + pure:dyne repos


So yeah, I reinstalled lenny, first time I've carried my /home directory over from a previous installation. I've got some broken packages, or something...

I try to run "apt-get upgrade -f" and I get:

Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/libgig6_3.2.1-3+cvs080916_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


and when I try "apt-get install -f", I get:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libgig6_3.2.1-3+cvs080916_i386.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libgig.so.6.3.0', which is also in package libgig
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/libgig6_3.2.1-3+cvs080916_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


how can I resolve this issue?

I'd really like to get this fixed so I can break my computer trying to install the rt kernel.

I can't locate libgig on my machine, and apt-get additionally gives me this message all the time:

The following extra packages will be installed:
libgig6
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libgig6

so apparently it expects it, and can't build it?

I'm going to try hunting a .rpm down and manually(relatively) installing.

thanks for the hand up alucard!

Not RPMs, DEBs.

Also sorry, I meant the package named "libgig", based on this line:
Code:
which is also in package libgig
, the system thinks there's a package named libgig installed, which is conflicting with libgig6.
