I am working with a Debian Wheezy setup and have Sernet Samb Version 4.0.6-SerNet-Debian-3.wheezy running successfully...but with one problem. When I did the original apt-get to install, I got an error indicating Winbind was not configured and the script stopped there. Now every time I run apt-get -f I get the following. Where should I be looking for clues as to how to fix this??

root at debian:~# apt-get install -f
