Angry I searched and searched so...

I'm tring to to get rehashed information but I cant find anything that is like my problem.

I have Knoppix (Debian core) and I installed it to my HD.It came with Wine preinstalled into KDE. I follow all the instructions for wine but when I run it I get the window that sais it is "Tring" to run my program but the windows keeps popping up literally hundres of times. y screen fills up with the windows and I have to force my system to shutdow to get it to stop. So I wanted to get the newest ver of wine. I used apt-get install wine and I get this

apt-get install wine
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
wine is already the newest version.
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
alsa-base: Depends: alsa-utils (>= 1.0.2-2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

so I run apt-get -f install then I get this

apt-get -f install
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
Suggested packages:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 475 not upgraded.
10 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/128kB of archives.
After unpacking 381kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
(Reading database ... 113438 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking alsa-utils (from .../alsa-utils_1.0.3-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/alsa-utils_1.0.3-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/alsamixer', which is also in package knx-alsa
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

now I did install ALSA and it works... Using XMMS right now.. so I dont know why apt-get is telling me that it needs deps for alsa. All I want to do is remove my old ver of Wine so I can put the new one in.
