Hey there, everybody.
Fairly decent user of Ubuntu, I've been running it since 10.04 and have gotten reasonably familiar with most aspects of day-to-day use. Recently I installed the new Intel graphics package manager, in the hopes that it would improve my experience with my Ironlake Mobile graphics card. At some point during the upgrade process being run by this app, something broke. Now, I have an error telling me that libcairo is broken twice. I have two separate broken dependency errors, and neither one seems fixable. libcairo2 breaks libcairo2:i386, and libcairo2:i386 breaks libcairo2. However, neither can be repaired using the package manager, and when attempting to uninstall either one, I am told that a HUGE amount of other packages depend on it, and will thus also be marked for uninstallation. apt-get install -f doesn't help, apt-get autoremove doesn't help, nothing I have tried works and it is preventing me from updating/installing any other package. What do I do in this situation?
