Hi there guys.

I've been trying to install WINE on my Quantal machine for several weeks but aptitude has never been able to resolve the dependencies quoting several internal errors. Does anyone know if this is a problem with aptitude or just a case of the required packages not being in sync on the repositories?

Also has anyone managed to install WINE (maybe on a 32-bit system) ?

Code:
root@quantal:~# aptitude install wine
