DSelect Problem on both SE/30 and Quadra 630
Here's a problem I've had installing Debian Linux onto both an SE/30
and Quadra/Performa 630 over a high-speed cable/ethernet connection:
When dropped into dselect to install packages everything works fine
the first time through, downloading packages from the internet and
then installing them. However, after quitting dselect, and then
going back a second time to install other programs, I get the
following error when trying the update option (a similar error occurs
when selecting the install option):
/urs/lib/dpkg//methods/apt/update: line 20: 5227 Segmentation fault
$APTGET $OPTS update
update available list script returned error exit status 139.
On the SE/30, this problem went away once by itself but then came
back. It seems that something in apt is getting screwed up. Anyone
have any ideas what the problem is?
BTW, netatalk works great on the quadra (based on limited testing),
but is slow as molasses on the SE/30. I haven't given up on the
SE/30 just yet though!
