Debian AMD64 Etch cannot install KDE


I'm relatively new to using Debian and just recently installed AMD64 kernel. Everytime i try to apt-get install kde it returns with the following

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kde: Depends: kdewebdev (>= 4:3.4.3) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

I tryed going back as far to find that some of its dependancies are broken as well, but how would i find these packages to fix this problem.

Thanks

My best advice is wait, your using unstable and this is not to uncommon with AMD64, it means the package for the kdewebdev module has been updated, but a library hasn't ( 64 libraries can sometimes take a little extra time. ).

Install the packages kde-amusements, kde-core, kdeaccessibility, kdeaddons, kdeadmin, kdeartwork, kdegraphics, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdepim and kdeutils. You'll have a complete kde system apart from Quanta, Kommander, KFileReplace, KImageMapEditor, KLinkStatus and kxsldbg.

change it to this

apt-get install kde-core kdm

This will give you a fully working KDE desktop. (The KDE metapackage is overkill for almost anybody)
