    Broken kdelibs-data updating knoppix 3.3 Ideas anyone?

    apt-get updating the kde packages a to 4.3.2.2-2 has resulted in kdelibs-data breaking. The output from fix broken is:
    Code:
    (Reading database ... 96276 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace kdelibs-data 4:3.1.5-1 (using .../kdelibs-data_4%3a3.2.2-2_all.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement kdelibs-data ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-data_4%3a3.2.2-2_all.deb (--unpack):
     trying to overwrite `/usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.sun.xml.calc.desktop', which is also in package openoffice-de-en
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
    
    Failed to apply all changes! Scroll in this buffer to see what went wrong
    My guess is that I need to uninstall openoffice-de-en (and maybe install from another source) before I can fix kde.

    Anyone else got any better ideas?

    Use dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-data_4%3a3.2.2-2_all.deb as root and that will force the overwrite the file.

    Is using dpkg --force-overwrite likely to cause apt issues in the future?

    openoffice-de-en is a compressed version made for knoppix, its best to get the actual package.

    try:
    apt-get remove openoffice-de-en
    apt-get install kdelibs-data

    then you apt-get openoffice again if u like...

    I tried that (about an hour ago).
    It wanted to uninstall kde completely...

    I've fixed (gotten around) the issue by doing a dist-upgrade rather than update of packages.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
