Just trying aptitude. It works way better and smoother than synaptic and far more powerful than apt-get. The text interface is neat and navigate fast as well.
Ready to dump synaptic...

Aptitude is great but I have some unresolved dependiences after dist-upgrade. I wouldn't dump synaptic just yet If I were you.

Aptitude and synaptic both use the same underlying APT system in much the same way, so it is rare that one will work where the other wouldn't.
Try running "aptitude update" again when you encounter problems. The armel repositories often lag behind the more common architectures so sometimes we have to wait...
