I'm trying to install ros-fuerte-arm-navigation in 12.04 but get broken dependencies in image-common, navigation, robot-model, and visualization. The problem seems to be a conflict with oneiric versions of libassimp-dev and yaml.cpp. Here are the messages I get when I run
apt-get -f install (to try to fix the broken dependencies):

If I try to remove the oneiric versions of assimp-dev or yaml-cpp in Synaptic, then a bunch of other packages in both electric and fuerte get marked for removal. Any idea how to fix this?
