No problem Fred. Glad it all worked out for you. The main goal with
the "apt-get -f ..." is to get your package manager into a sane state.
After that you can add/remove whatever you like. To be honest, I've
only used "-f install" when recovering from broken installs, not
removals. I just assumed "-f remove" would reverse the
logic...apparently not :P Serves me right for not testing it before
making assertions - heheh.
Anyway, thanks for letting us know your system's back to normal. It's
nice to know the community still works :)
