I am trying to install VirualBox 4.2 on Ubuntu 12.10 but when this is the error I get:

 The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 virtualbox-4.2 : Depends: libqt4-opengl (>= 4:4.7.2) but it is not going 
 to be installed
 E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

And if I try to run the command for dependencies, I get the message that its already installed. I have 64-bit Ubuntu and trying to install 64-bit VirtualBox

The issue seems to be with the linux-headers as I have 3.5.0.21 where as its asking for 3.5.0.17
