Package: nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx
Version: 96.43.07-2
Justification: renders package unusable
Severity: grave

This about says it all:

        xserver-xorg-core conflicts with xserver-xorg-video-2 [provided by nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx 96.43.07-2]
        --\ The following actions will resolve this dependency:
          -> Remove xserver-xorg-core [2:1.6.3-1+b1 (testing, now)]                                          
          -> Cancel the installation of nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx
        nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.26-2-686 depends upon linux-image-2.6.26-2-686
        --\ The following actions will resolve this dependency:
          -> Cancel the installation of nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.26-2-686        
The system in question is a Dell Latitude C840 with an NVidia GeForce4
440 Go. It was lately updated from Lenny to Squeeze, and now it is
impossible to use the accelerated NVidia drivers (nv works, but much
more slowly).

Setting severity to "grave" because the package cannot be installed,
