I would wash the walls first with a water/TSP solution to remove any built up grime, grease, etc. Let the walls dry and then sand them lightly to prepare a base for your primer. Remove all dust. I would then prime with a alkyd based primer. After your primer has dried, you may apply a latex topcoat(s). You might try getting your primer tinted to approx. the same color as your finish coat.
