When I switch to the <alt>-F2 console and try to do a "wget", I get a
Please take a look on the syslog of the installer and if possible
attach it to this
bug report (please, gzip it).
The syslog file of a failed install has been sent to the 520711 bug
I glanced at it, but I'm not a d-i guru (just a [usually] happy
user). The only thing I noticed was a few occurrences of
Mar 25 03:36:30 main-menu: DEBUG: resolver (libc6-udeb):
package doesn't exist (ignored)
Mar 25 03:36:30 main-menu: DEBUG: resolver (libc6): package
doesn't exist (ignored)
But they are probably harmless because they were followed eventually by
Mar 25 03:36:36 anna: DEBUG: retrieving libc6-udeb 2.9-4
so something else will be needed to explain the seg-fault in wget.
This particular installation attempt was done on a network that did
have DHCP, so the syslog shows it succeeding -- no manual network
configuration was required. From this I assume I can deduce that the
network was up and working, so it's not a matter of having the wrong
(or no) network driver...
Hope it helps...
PS: I assume that Otavio and Alexander are subscribed to the PowerPC
