pygame and ubuntu dependency issues

Im having a pretty damn hard time installing pygame. It refuses to install the dependcys. After doing some searching around I think that the problem is with one dependency called tzdata. when I try to get it via apt-get and it tells me that it is unavaible. I downloaded the debian package and it says
"trying to overwrite /usr/share/zoneinfo/, which is also in package locales"

Have you guys had experience with this?


Ok, after trying to install a seperate program, dosbox, using apt-get, I found the same problem It gives a problem with libc6. It says libc6 requires tzdata but thtas not avaible. This might be because I just recently updated to the i686 kernel using apt-get. So, do you guys have any ideas now?
