apt-get error blocking installation of all packages


Hi all,

Code:
gnychis@monster:~$ sudo apt-get install gtkpod
[sudo] password for gnychis:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
gtkpod is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  gtkpod: Depends: libgpod2 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

gnychis@monster:~$ sudo apt-get -f install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libgpod2
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libgpod2
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/181kB of archives.
After unpacking 385kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
(Reading database ... 140069 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libgpod2 (from .../libgpod2_0.5.2-2_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libgpod2_0.5.2-2_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libgpod.so.2.0.0', which is also in package libgpod1
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/libgpod2_0.5.2-2_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
This error is blocking the installation of all packages, so I would greatly appreciate any help.

- George

Just a shot in the dark. But is /usr/lib/libgpod.so.2.0.0' in use?
(I know, doesn't usually matter...)
Do you have permissions to overwrite?

Did your connection drop?

gtkpod is already the newest version

If you are sure you need a newer version....
perhaps you could try a source install in a random location that won't affect your distro?
