You'll need to keep up to date, and upgrade these packages to whatever's
current in Hardy. We don't continue to support installation of packages
on older alphas without any extra changes.

'sudo apt-get -f install' after getting errors from dpkg should
generally be enough to deal with it.

(I agree with Mario's comment that you shouldn't blindly install all the
frontends, either.)
