The following command should tell the package system to put itself in a
consistent state:

	apt-get -f install

The -f stands for fix.  It might suggest something you don't want --
like installing all the packages you just removed.  If you can't or
won't do what it says, we can try running some dangerous forcing

However, if it doesn't work, please send along anything significant it
says and the output of the following command:

	dpkg -l kqemu-sources

Good luck,
