I hope this is the right place to post this.  Apologies if not. 

My samba 3.0.4-3 install was working fine last night on debian 2.4.23 
unstable (see uname below) and happily tranferring large files at 77 
Mbps across my LAN (a first!  but that's another story) until, suddenly, 
it stopped and would only move data at about .05 Mbps.  Investigation 
was futile, so I uninstalled Samba and then tried to reinstall.  That's 
where the trouble began:

FAF:~# apt-get install samba
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  samba: Depends: libcupsys2-gnutls10 (>= 1.1.20final-1) but it is not 
going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Installing libcupsys2-gnutls10 would require removing about 60 packages 
including KDE, ark, and a dozen libraries. 

I'd be grateful for any advice, including telling me that this sort of 
problem usually resolves itself in a day or so.

Some additional system information:

FAF:~# dpkg -l |grep lipcupsys2

Hope this helps, and please LMK if more information is needed.
