Ah well .. I have only a 1GB /var Partition ...
no, this is not a joke, it was not enough.
I am not sure if I alrady used apt at that stage ogf instalation or ftp, but

When it realized that this will not work it presented me a list of about 1500

just btw.: why has every method of installing it's own download dir.
Is this realy necessarely? I sometimes swich (or at least did so upgrading
hamm -> slink )
