I've been trying to use kpackage to do some updating and removal. just playing around type stuff, nothing major. Problem is, I can't seem to get it to work correctly.

For instance, this is the error message I get when trying to do anything with Frozen Bubble:
< export DEBIAN_FRONTEND; apt-get remove frozen-bubble-data ;echo RESULT=$?
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
frozen-bubble-data
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 591 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B of archives.
After unpacking 5747kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
dpkg: error processing frozen-bubble-data (--remove):
Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
reinstall it before attempting a removal.
Errors were encountered while processing:
frozen-bubble-data
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
RESULT=100


The most common "error" i seem to get is
Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

So - what am I missing here?
This is a HD install on hda2, and yes - I am running as root.

Knoppix is a mix of stable/testing/unstable packages.

Which causes problems whenever your trying to install something.

There is a version of knoppix made for installing which seems to be better. Though I can't think of it right now.

frozen-bubble package is badly installed, a file is missing so apt falls over trying to find a non-existant file.
