    yeah, I can't configure them because dpkg says there are unmet dependencies.
    , that didn't work.

    it's like the chicken-and-egg -effect: because of the error I can't fix the error.

    Wait a minute, why do the packages from quantal show up in reverse dependencies of libdrm-nouveau2:

    Answering to myself: they are from precise-updates.

    Ok, then try (you can hit <TAB> several times to complete the file name)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get -d upgrade libdrm-nouveau1a
    dpkg --force-overwrite -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libdrm-nouveau1a_2.4.42+git1302070925.20c560~gd~p_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get -f upgrade

    ^^looks clear, no quantal. perhaps it's an error with a package: made for quantal but distributed as precise.

    so ppa-purge might be your friend (if you use it about that other optimized-drv)

    it isn't, I considered it but then I thought "why install unnecessary packages?" add-apt-repository ppa:user:blahblah-ppah works just as well.

    As far as I know ppa-purge can't fix this error.

    I've already found out, see here. BTW, have you tried dpkg --force-overwrite as I suggested there?

    At least I have tried sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq.
    ok lets copy that code into the teminal...
    thank you!!!!!!

    looks like the force-overwrite did help.
    while typing this firefox says I have to restart my browser because there is an updated version->if firefox is updated apt works again!
    the error box dissapeared.

    all updates installed without any error, now it doesn't feel like windows anymore
