Hi, I have just upgraded to Hardy and something went wrong with the upgrade. Basically this is how the error message looks like, that comes out when I try to finalize the upgrade of KDE i.e. install kde-core

I have been doing all the tricks I know but do not manage to get this pesky media_safelyremove.desktop disappear.
