Right, I have just moved-away to test and replaced the library just after :)

I see. Yet it still want to remove more than 100 packages amongst them
sound-juicer, abiword, gnumeric, file-roller...

Packages above does not depends on debian-multimedia, right?

Ok, how do you explain that many packages have to be removed.

After editing my source.list, I have made sure my system was clean and

   $ aptitude clean
   $ aptitude update
   $ aptitude dist-upgrade

Any idea?

If not I'll do the removal and try to reinstall all packages after...
