Broken Packages


Hey peeps

I dont really know when or how this happened, but I went to do a routine update/upgrade today and it seems I have a broken package.


Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  xlibmesa-gl-dev: Depends: xlibmesa-gl (= 4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1) but 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10 is installed
I have tried apt-get -f, I trie to use Synaptic to repair the brokken packages, and also to manually download that file.

But none of them work, and until this gets fixed I cant seem to use APT.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hong

Oh, and I have also tried dpkg --configure -a as suggested by the APT man pages
