I'm trying to install Panda3D on Ubuntu 11.10, but I keep on running into dependency problems that I can't resolve.
Here's the output of trying to run panda3d1.8_1.8.0*.deb
sudo dpkg -i panda3d1.8_1.8.0+cvs20120125~oneiric104_i386.deb

Errors were encountered while processing:
It seems to me I have libavcodec53 and all the rest installed, so I don't understand what's the problem. I tried purging and reinstalling libs with apt-get install, but to no avail.
Same issue persists if I try any other available panda3d1.8_1.8.0*.deb, or 1.7.2 version.
Similar problem was described in http://www.panda3d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12076
where it was marked as a problem with Panda3d package, not user's PC.
Any ideas on what's really going on any how to resolve it would be greatly appreciated.
