apt-get screwing up


apt-get is fucked!every time i try to install something it retuns with this error. (i dont have it with me now)
basically, i installed the (new) icculus.org quake2 packages, then when that didn't work (cause i was too lazy to configure it properly) i mistakenly followed the really really old quake2 howto on linuxquake, which totally fucked things up. basically apt-get tells me that there are too many quake2 packages installed and that one of them has to be deleted.
the first time this happened i told it to go ahead and delete, and it did, but the second time and each time since then, it asks me if i want to delete and then dies, complaining that there's nothing to delete.
it gave me a line to put in my config that was supposed to exclude quake 2 from the apt-get rolls or some shit.
anyways i want fixee. so helpee

I think an exact output of the error would be helpful, to solve your problem!

If you have synaptic open it up and try to uninstall everything that came in when you loaded those packages the ruined apt. Then get rid of apt with rpm and reinstall it the way you got it. If you don't have synaptic the cure is the same but you have to dig around and try to find the rpms that have to go.

Getting rid of apt-get with rpm ? Well apt-get is part of debian system which is luckily not based on rpms :-)

okay sorry this took so long

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  quake2#3.20-glibc-6: Depends: libglide2x.so but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
B:
Code:
[root@localhost bennyp]# apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
