Help with unmet dependencies


Hello.

I am running Lenny and I would like to compile a kernel. I tried:

apt-get install libncurses5-dev

but I get this messages:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libncurses5-dev: Depends: libncurses5 (= 5.5-5) but 5.6+20080308-1 is to be installed

How can I resolve that problem?

Code:
# aptitude -f install
That should fix unmet dependencies.

I did just that but, still can't get my problem resolved. I'm trying to run make menuconfig and I get this:

*** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
*** required header files.
*** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
***
*** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
***
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdialog] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

Now what can I do?
