I purchased the machine just yesterday, so I guess there is no point in
obtaining a new CPU to a computer that costed around $17 USD. It is an
LC040, saying "523134-101", "XC68LC040RC258", "02E36", "QEMB9404C" and
"MALAYSIA". So it's defective then?

I tried to install some packages with dpkg, some succesful and some not. I'm
familiar with Debian x86, so this must be either an issue of CPU or
nonfinished installation process, musn't it?

Think, I'll try to change the machine to an earlier model then, with a 030
processor. Pity, since this one had 20 MB RAM, 250 MB harddisk and a
DaynaPort ethernet card installed.
