Bug#252425: man-db causes install to fail
This report pertains to the beta4 and tc1 versions of the
debian-installer as run on a ppc.
The 'dpkg --configure man-db' step fails in the installation, which
causes the 'Install base system' step to fail. My work-around was to use
console #2 and insert 'exit 0' at the top of
/var/lib/dpkg/info/man-db.postinst in between the package being
extracted and the configuration being run. Making the postinst script
not run causes installation to complete successfully.
