Here is what i've done so far:

- I install ubuntu using the ubuntu server. This is because my primary ATI
Radeon VGA card is broken. So i can't install ubuntu using ubuntu-desktop
iso, because it always use my broken VGA card to initialize the installer.
- After successfully setup core packages for ubuntu server, i choose to
install ubuntu-desktop and use intel-installer to use my seconday VGA card.
- Then after installing more packages, i try to install skype by enabling
partner repository using apt-get method:

*sudo apt-get install skype*

*but i got following error:*

*Reading package lists... Done*
*Building dependency tree       *
*Reading state information... Done*
*Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have*
*requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable*
*distribution that some required packages have not yet been created*
*or been moved out of Incoming.*
*The following information may help to resolve the situation:*

*The following packages have unmet dependencies:*
* skype : Depends: skype-bin*
*E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.*

Does anybody know how to deal with this issue ?
