As a result of trying to install Xfree-4 ,apt-get installed/removed a
raft of packages.
The install process finally produced these errors
Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 0B will be used.

dpkg: error processing debconf (--configure):

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libglide2:
libglide2 depends on debconf (>= 0.3.74); however:
Package debconf is not configured yet.
followed by a list of packages failed because debconf was not installed.
I don't understand whether its a problem of debconf or perl.
What do I need to do, if anything or just wait until updated versions of the
packages are available?
If this sounds as if I am bushed you are so right.
