That might well be.  What happens when you install the package with
"apt-get install hatari"?

No wait, you are probably using "Install from file".  So please try
"dpkg --install <hatari>" on the command line.  If that works, then
the Application installer is fabricating the error message out of thin
air, maybe because the rest of your system is not clean.  What does
"apt-get check" say?  Will "apt-get -f install" try to do any changes?

In any case, the AI should be able to deal with a non-clean system, so
it would be great if we could sort this out.  (Maybe I should just
reread the relevant code in the AI... it's been a while since I wrote
it and I was young and naive then... ;)
