Hi having an issue with some dependencies here:

Synaptic Package Manager, when attempting to fix a broken dependency traced from the SKYPE package, wants to install "ia32-libs" however, attempting to execute this change results in the following error:

"E: /var/cache/apt/archives/ia32-libs_2.2ubuntu11_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/lib32/libGL.so.1', which is also in package nvidia-glx-new"

any ideas how to deal w/this?

Do you have XChat installed? If don't you can use Pidin, anyway try connecting to the IRC server irc.freenode.net then join the #ubuntu-motu channel. (use /join #ubuntu-motu) to join the channel.

You should be able to get more help in that channel. That is where the people who build the ubuntu packages talk and they should be able to help you out.
