wants to remove a bunch of packages !
aptitude is already the newest version.

required: sg3-utils bluez-gnome python-gst0.10 libmtp8
python-gnome2-extras evolution-exchange gnome-themes-more rhythmbox

python-gtkspell python-gtkmozembed python-gtkhtml2

libgtkhtml2-0 libgpod-common python-gdbm python-4suite-xml
transmission-common libgdl-1-0 serpentine libopenobex1
transmission-gtk libgdl-1-common gnome-vfs-obexftp Use 'apt-get
autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to
