I'm having trouble installing packages on my desktop (running Ubuntu 8.04). Everything is fine until the Y-sound-server is needed, and then the install aborts. It's like this thing is the kiss of death! I'm still new to this, I know that there must be a config file somewhere, but I don't know what it should be in it if I found it.
This is the message from the last (crashed) install.

Installation finished

failed to install package 'yiff-server_2.14.5-2.2_i386.deb

(Reading database .... 128861 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace yiff-server 2.14.5-2.2 (usinf .../yiff-server_2.14.5-2.2_i386.deb ) ...

subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Any ideas?
