Installing Trinity on Squeeze: problem with recommends

Hello all :-)

I am doing a fresh install of Trinity, on a fresh install of Debian Squeeze, 
which so far has no GUI installed.

After I issue:
aptitude install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity

I get a list of 165 recommends and the question: do you accept this solution?

Well, I think that there are 165, but the first that I can currently see is 
number 147.  Having dismally failed to find a way to see what I am being 
asked to agree to, I decided to accept all recommends, which might at least 
reduce the number of things on the screen and let me see what else, if 
anything, aptitude is telling me.  (Oh, I do miss konsole!)

So I did:
aptitude -r install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity

That made no difference at all.  Still a problem, still 165 recommends (as far 
as I can see), still:  do you accept this solution?  And I still don't know 
what "solution" it is recommending.  It might be suggesting _removing_ 165 

So, in case I had gone bonkers and got the order wrong I tried:
aptitude install -r desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity

Same result.  :-(

I am fresh out of ideas.  I have had enough physical problems building this 
computer, without software problems as well. :-(

Help!  (And thank you, of course)
