    HI all,

    (Reading database ... 100040 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace kdesktop 4:3.4.1-1 (using .../kdesktop_4%3a3.5.1-1_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement kdesktop ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kdesktop_4%3a3.5.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
    trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/kdesktop_lock', which is also in package kdelock-knoppix
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/kdesktop_4%3a3.5.1-1_i386.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    what version of knoppix are you using? and also I believe based on what I haver read throughout these forums that knoppix tends to break after an hd-install, but more help will be forthcoming if you provide a version number of the OS you are using.
