You're doomed, we'll never build your package anymore, you'll be stuck in this state forever :-P Seriously, the timeout is just a hack to prevent packages to loop forever as part of their build. When it happens, the usual response is 'increase the timeout and retry'. Just wait a while; it should be rebuilt soonishly. -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "An expert can usually spot the difference between a fake charge and a full one, but there are plenty of dead experts." -- National Geographic Channel, in a documentary about large African beasts.
