Problem installing KDE4 on Debian sid
I did a net install of Debian with lenny cd. Then changed my sources.list to testing. After a while wanted to use sid and accordingly changed the sources.list to sid. Then did update and dist-upgrades. Now if I type cat /etc/issue, I get
Does it mean I'm not pure Sid? Is that important anyway? Coz, I'm trying to install KDE4 on this system and it ends up showing dependency error.

I followed the method mentioned in The Debian KDE maintainers website. Edited sources.list to include 'experimental' and then again did apt-get update. But whether I try,
apt-get install -t experimental kde4-minimal
it gives dependency error as,
aptitude install -t experimental kde4-minimal
Those who I contacted on IRC had followed the same method and it had worked for them. Whats wrong with my system then? Could somebody help me out?
