dpkg problem


When i run dpkg -i filename.deb i get the following output:

(Reading database ... 67633 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace fglrx-kernel-src 8.10.19-1 (using fglrx-kernel-src_8.10.19-1_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement fglrx-kernel-src ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of fglrx-kernel-src:
fglrx-kernel-src depends on kernel-package; however:
Package kernel-package is not installed.
dpkg: error processing fglrx-kernel-src (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any idea of how i'm gonna get the .deb installed?
