Hi all, I'm installing some software and getting some errors from
apt-get. Here is what I typed and the errors I got:

$ sudo apt-get upgrade
 Reading Package Lists... Done
 Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
faac: Depends: mpeg4ip-libs but it is not installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

 $ sudo apt-get -f install

The following extra packages will be installed:
   The following NEW packages will be installed:
     0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
     1 not fully installed or removed.
     Need to get 0B/452kB of archives.
     After unpacking 1585kB of additional disk space will be used.
     Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y

     Preconfiguring packages ...

     dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/mpeg4ip-libs_2%
3a1.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
      trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libmp4v2.so.0.0.0', which is also in
package libmp4-0
      dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
      Errors were encountered while processing:
       E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I tried deleting libmp4v2.so.0.0.0 and running it again and got the same
error even though the file wasn't there. 

The only thing that I feel is worth mentioning that might be interfering
with this that I have the nvidia drivers installed. Apt-get now won't
let me do anything till I get this dependency resolved. Anyone have any
hints on how to get around this. 

Your help is much appreciated. Thank you.
