apt-get pulls wrong packages

I upgraded to 2.6.11 from 2.6.10 now when I try to get ivtv packages
from apt-get it pulls packages for and wants
to reinstall that kernel.

Can someone point me in the right direction to fix it.

Did you update using apt?


Did you update your kernel using apt from the same repository where you are updating ivtv?

I had that problem before with another package. I had set-up incompatible repositories and while I knew that I had the latest version of the package installed from one of the repositories, it kept insisting on installing an older version from a different one.

What I did was to configure the other repository to ignore that particular package.

If you updated your kernel with up2date or with yum or from a different apt repository, that may be your problem. Try disabling the repository where it is trying to update ivtv and enable a repository that has the latest version.

If thiks helps, don't forget to click the thanks button.
