Looks like a different problem than I had. When I tried to install it, the
head command segfaulted, since it was used in postinstall(?) the
installation did not succeeed. After I recompiled textutils and installed
it, libc6 could be configured. Your error mesage does not say anything about
head segfaulting, so its a different problem?
Which kernel are you using? I am running 2.2.17, on kullervo (2.2.10) I
installed this libc in a chroot using the recompiled textutils deb.
Maybe its related to devpts, I don't think I am using that.
Can you try to find out which line in the postint.rm segfaults?
Maybe this should be reported to BenC, I only had problems with head, but
all kinds of packages might require recompilation (I am running a few more
experimental/testing packages, bash, gcc, make they made it work for me?).
Sorry, no further idea, but thanks for finding this out. Things like this
happen when there are no mac debian-m68 developers, or users running
