I Miss Ktorrent Continued

Days 29-31

I have spent the past three days trying to reinstall Ktorrent. It's becoming the itch that can't be scratched. Here is the truncated list of all my failed attempts so far.

  • After checking previous posts, I started a new thread on EeeUser in hopes of the answer. No luck yet.
  • Someone suggested removing all references to the offending libqt3c102-mt file. It didn't work (but here is the how-to if you want to give it a go).
  • I found an article explaining how a similar error was coming up when people tried to install an old version of Skype. The article linked to the Skype homepage with directions to reinstall an updated version which also installs the needed dependencies. Not only did it not work, my Eee damn near threw a fit when I tried to downgrade my version of Skype.
  • Another site said to add two new repositories, so I did. This is the current list on my laptop with the new ones appearing at the end.
deb common main
deb p900 main
deb en main
deb p701 main
deb p701 etch main
deb dccri-3.0 main
deb xandros4 main
deb p701 main etch
deb-src v1.1 main
deb p701 dev
deb binary/
deb-src source/

Adding the repositories got rid of the original libqt3c102-mt error, but only to replace it with a more complexing one:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ktorrent: Depends: libgeoip1 (>= 1.3.17) but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

I have no idea what libgeoip1 is. It doesn't even come up in a Google search. Any ideas?
