cannot apt-get anything Kdelibs-data error


Hi,

I have installed Knoppix 3.2 on harddisk and am trying to install Gnome and a few other packages using the very excellent apt-get tool. Unfortunately every time I run apt-get install <package_name> or even apt-get -yft unstable <package_name>, apt-get falls over with the following error:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdelibs4: Depends: kdelibs-data (= 4:3.1.4-2) but 4:3.1.2-2 is to be installed


I tried apt-get -f install and apt-get dist-upgrade and apt-get upgrd but all of them fall over with the same error. Is there anyway to work around this. Although I like KDE very much I would like to try out Gnome and anyway dont see why GNome should require kdelib* files (still a relative linux newbie but trying to learn )

Can anyone please help me out.. I have tried googling for it but cant find anything useful.. maybe my search terms were not relevant...

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Remember that apt is dependant on /etc/apt/sources.list. KDE stuff outside stable (2.2.2) is not kept in stable repository and hence you would have to add the line to sources.list so in this case it looks like its looking for KDE 3.1.4 stuff so you would have to add;
deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.4/Debian stable main
