Re: apt-get failure: "no script in the new version of the package"

Still no luck. I've discovered that "dpkg --configure -a" is my friend
-- it seemed to uncork things a bit, but it only helped so much. A
broken esound-common install still seems to be the crux of the problem,
but the error messages I'm getting are a deep mystery.

What am I doing wrong? I would be grateful for _any_ help, even if I
have to muck about inside /var/lib/dpkg/info, putting right what once
went wrong, and hoping that each tweak will be the tweak home.
