Re: Problem with apt and kdemultimedia-dev

This is usually a bug (but check the bug list before reporting as the problem 
my be a result of changes to the packaging system that were made after your 
initial installation).

You probably can do a force-overwrite using dpkg but be aware that doing so 
might break something.
