I have used a PPA for more recent versions of digiKam (and supporting libs). I now want to install 'standard' Wine but getthe results below. Note that I tried to install Wine first but tracing through error messages got me to this. Also note that I am running 64-bit Kubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and even when I try to install the AMD64 Wine I still get led back to this :i386 package issue.

So it would seem that I have a satisfactory package installed but apt-get is not detecting that 2.4.14 is >= 18.104.22.168. Other than generating my own equiv package or modifying the Wine package to change dependencies... can I help apt-get understand this?
Of course, the alternative is that apt-get understands perfectly and I'm the one that is confused.
