kde apt troubles... again...

okay, i installed AGAIN.. wheee... but apt doesn't seem to be making any sense.

i used netselect-apt testing to get a sourc.list file with some fast testing servers.
then i try apt-get install kde and it says that there are tons of unmet dependencies and that the package is broken.

I've tried adding the deb stable main
to my sources.list, but it doesn't seem to help at all....

any yep, i do apt-get update after editing the sources.list

what am i missing?

You probably need a more update version of X:

deb ./

I got it to work like this:
Added: "deb stable main" to /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get install arts kdelibs kdebase [kdegraphics kdeadmin kdemultimedia kdegames kdeaddons kdeartwork kdeedu kdepim kdeutils]
(I guess that the modules in [ ] is optional. These are all the modules I have found)
