Hm.  On my device dpkg -s reports exactly the same versions of
the packages as on your device except that zlib1g version had
.osso4 appended.  And on my device Hatari package installed
without problems...

Seems pretty strange.  Maybe you could try compiling Hatari from
the sources and trying your own binary package?  I've got instructions
for building the Hatari package for N770 on the same page where the Hatari
binary package is.  If you get Hatari sources from the CVS, the stylus
patch shouldn't be anymore used/needed with Hatari's latest CVS version,
only the keyboard shortcut patch is needed.

I've updated the Hatari/N770 pages quite a bit and added there
few more games.  I think this is definately the best way to
proceed into "I've ported more games to the device than anybody
else" position. ;-)

PS. I'll be off-net for a while again.
