hi Rich!

Following is the output of the given command:

simrat at ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get -f install
[sudo] password for simrat:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  debhelper po-debconf intltool-debian gettext html2text
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

One thing more, my system is intel Pentium D (ie 64-bit) and i h'v installed ubuntu-7.10-alternate-amd64.iso so that it can fully utilize my 64-bit processor, Is this a reason for my problem or not? Or i should reinstall ubuntu using desktop-i386.iso (i don;t h'v this file right now)
