When I try to install puppet-common on a debian squeeze, the following problems occur:

Is there a version of puppet currently installed? How about Ruby? I'm wondering what happens if you remove either/both and let dpkg reinstall the correct dependencies.

I think my installs are using Ruby 1.8. Can you install 'puppet-common'? what happens if you do `apt-get -f install ..`?

puppet is not installed, ruby is not installable.

root@squeeze:/home/mb# aptitude show puppet
Paket: puppet                               
Zustand: nicht installiert
Version: 3.4.1-1puppetlabs1
Priorität: optional
Bereich: admin
Verwalter: Puppet Labs <>
Unkomprimierte Größe: 106 k
Hängt ab von: puppet-common (= 3.4.1-1puppetlabs1), ruby | ruby-interpreter
Empfiehlt: rdoc
Schlägt vor: puppet-el, vim-puppet

Or can you tell me which is the right ruby-package? Is it this one?

ruby1.9.1-full - Ruby 1.9.1 full installation
