Apt dependency problem..


Code:
sagara@sousuke:~$ agi quodlibet
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
quodlibet is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  python2.4-kde3: Depends: python2.4-sip4-qt3 (>= 4.3) but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: python2.4-sip4-qt3 (< 4.4) but it is not going to be installed
  python2.4-qt3: Depends: python2.4-sip4-qt3 (>= 4.3) but it is not going to be installed
                 Depends: python2.4-sip4-qt3 (< 4.4) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
sagara@sousuke:~$ agi -f
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  python2.4-sip4-qt3
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  python2.4-sip4-qt3

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
sagara@sousuke:~$
(note: agi is my alias for apt-get install + quodlibet is already installed, it's an example)

I have no idea whatsoever how to fix this, please enlighten me

Looks like there's a problem with python's versions on you PC.
Do
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude -f install
sudo aptitude upgrade
