Question problem with dpkg

hi to every one.

finally i instaled knoppix 3.3 (based on debian) on my hard.

i download yahoo messenger from yahoo.
and use this command:

dpkg -i ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb

but it gave me:

(Reading database ... dpkg: error processing ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb (--install):
files list file for package `libgtk1.2-dev' is missing final newline
Errors were encountered while processing:
Processing was halted because there were too many errors.

If you have apt-get configured and a working internet connection, you can run
apt-get update
apt-get install libgtk1.2-dev
This will reinstall gtk1-dev library and its dependacies, so should fix any problem related to a broken package.
Note that AFAIK Knoppix is based either on testing or unstable, not on stable, so your apt-sources should be set accordingly.
