this bug is gone, but I've got a new one, this time installing unstable as of 

german to english translation: "can't install selected kernel", alt-f3 shows

kernel-image-2.4.25-power-pmac: depnds kernel-modules-2.4.25-powerpc

it's okay for me. testing and unstable are useful for different things!

above URL.
