Debian wine install question.....


i have been running debian sarge for about 3 weeks now...
i would like to run a small simple windows-only program,
so i thought i would experiment with wine.....

i have thoroughly read the wine HQ installation and configuration instructions....
i have also googled this topic for a few days with no luck....
perhaps someone here could help me out...

i added the following two lines to my /etc/apt/sources.list file
Code:
deb h t t p : / /wine.sourceforge.net/apt/  binary/
deb-src h t t p : / /wine.sourceforge.net/apt/  source/

(sorry for the spaces, it wont let me post URL's until i have 5 posts)
the command line gives me this:
Code:
LinuxMail:/# apt-get install wine winesetuptk
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  wine: Conflicts: winesetuptk but 0.7-1.1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
LinuxMail:/usr/lib/wine#
i am able to install either the wine or the winesetuptk packages alone, but the packages cannot be installed at the same time....

any ideas why?
thanks in advance!

ah, yes, an excellent question....

yes, i have done both "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" many times (back and forth)... and both are entirely complete....

any other ideas?

thanks in advance!

two more ideas for sources.list:

try using only the official wine source (just comment the others), do apt-get update and then try again.

and if that doesn't work try doing the same thing above, but just using the debian mirror (so comment the official wine source).

Either one or the other should work, i doubt they're both broken. If that doesn't work, just try downloading the deb manually off the internet and then installing via dpkg -i. Though this is a hassle, especially to fullfill the dependencys. Good luck.
