apt-get dependency problem


Hi, i am trying to install samba with apt, and i get the following error. I ran the install with the -f option but that didn't do the trick. I had amarok running the first time i tried, so i thought it could be a problem with access, so i closed and re tried, to no avail.

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
amarok-xine: Depends: amarok (= 2:1.4.8-0ubuntu1~gutsy1) but 2:1.4.7-0ubuntu3 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

How can i get this fixed???

Obviously, amarok 2:1.4.8 isn't available for installation yet, so it can't proceed. Your package (or one of the packages you're installing) appears to have amarok-xine as a dependency (for some reason), and the current amarok-xine package in turn depends on the newest version of amarok.

You have several options.

1: find a source for the newest version of amarok, or perhaps compile it yourself.

2: find another source for samba, or perhaps compile your own.

3: downgrade to an older version of samba, one whose dependencies are currently available.

4: force-install samba and hope it works correctly with the current version of amarok (see the apt-get man page). Not recommended.

or

5: wait a few days for the amarok upgrade to go through so you can install the current version. I recommend this option unless you really need the program right away.

Ok, sounds like the waiting part is viable because i don't exactly need it right now, so i'll wait around. If not, i suppose i can look up the dependency with apt itself. Thanks so much and i'll come back and post how i got it fixed or any further updates.

Thanks a lot man.
