Bug#1508: Segmentation fault while installing...
I installed dpkg 77 fine (before the R6 release) and installed a few packages
no problem... Now, my mirror script deleted all the files on my hard drive
and is re-mirroring debian again because the files have been moved to the dir
debian-0.93 (but that's a different story).
In any case on BOTH my machines now, I noticed I was still running adduser
version 1.93. I noticed adduser 1.94 in base so I decided to install it, and
here's what followed:
[root@stargate:2:/pub/linux/debian/debian-0.93/binary/base] dpkg -i adduser-
(Reading database ... 6380 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace adduser (using adduser-1.94-1.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement adduser ...
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
This happened on BOTH my machines which currently run Debian 0.93R5. I
wondered if is was adduser itself, so I tried installing acct again from the
admin directory - same error. It couldn't possibly be something wrong
hardware wise becuase it's happening on both my PCs...
