Installing xserver-xfree86 fails


I am trying to get Xfree86 installed on an Itanium HP i2000. When I
issue apt-get install xserver-xfree86 I get the following error:

rau:~# apt-get install xserver-xfree86
Reading Package Lists... Done

The following NEW packages will be installed:

dpkg: error processing

Errors were encountered while processing:

Anyone know how to fix that?
