cannot apt-get libc6-dev
I am trying to install Debian (this has been pure hell so far) for about
the 10th time and am suddenly having a problem apt-getting lib6c-dev. I
don't know what this program is, but it seems to be a system-vital thing,
as there are a lot of dependencies on it. Without it installed, I can't
install a lot of other things. I have tried getting it from the cd as well
as via HTTP, but the error is the same either way. The error is:
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error
dpkg-deb: subprocess gzip -dc returned error exit status 1
dpkg: error processing
subprocess dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2
I have tried everything I can think of - reformat, reinstall, repartition,
etc, but the problem remains. Any ideas why this is happening?
Oh, and is there any way to tell apt-get where to download something from,
other than removing it from sources.list?
I should have stuck with an easier distro... :(
