Angry problem with reloading package info in synaptic (jaunty 64bit)


recently installed jaunty 64 bit along side intrepid 32 bit (32 bit version works fine, very happy bunny), but have some problems with synaptic. When I do a reload of package info it doesn't provide a window showing the updates .. but there is a very great deal of network activity, (this is my problem as the isp i use has a download limit.... don't ask!!), doing apt-get update produces the following output, I stop it because it takes a long time and Internet traffic is large

root@james-ubuntu-64:/home/james# apt-get update
apt-get: update
Get: http://ftp.debian.org sid/main Sources
Get: http://ftp.debian.org sid/contrib Sources
Get: http://ftp.debian.org sid/non-free Sources
Convert: acl 2.2.47-3
Convert: alsa-lib 1.0.20-3
Convert: arts 1.5.9-3
Convert: atk1.0 1.26.0-1
Convert: at-spi 1.26.0-1
Convert: attr 1:2.4.43-3
Error: Binary / source version mismatch, skipping.
Convert: audiofile 0.2.6-7


why is it doing this and how do i make it stop? intrepid works fine as does jaunty 32 bit on my asus 4G netbook.

before you say reinstall ..... I did it .. twice..

These aren't Ubuntu repositories they're Debian. Don't mix and match.

Can you Copy and Paste the contents of your sources list here? Open a Terminal and issue the command:
Quote:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Lightbulb after much thinking.......

I may have resolved the problem..

I reviewed the exact steps I took setting up the system ...
one thing I have needed in the past is real-player... the deb is 32 bit

to install requires 1a32-lib-tools... this requires ia32-apt-get, i guessed that this was the problem... removed it .. and it worked!!!

so i'm happy, but what happened?

my guess is that the 32 bit apt environment has its own sources.list I noted in process list a lot of apt updates thought that odd led me to think it was because more than one system was involved, but frankly i have no idea.

can anybody enlighten me?
