Bug#23902: bug #23902: debian beta 2.0 dpkg dumps core
severity 23902 grave
I had a similar experience today: dpkg --configure --pending failed with this:
dpkg: unable to fill /var/lib/dpkg/updates/tmp.i with padding: file too large.
After a couple of retries the message went away, strangely enough, and
--configure --pending started working. I don't like dpkg doing this in an
official release, so I am upgrading this to "grave"
BTW, this caused apt to segfault.
Proudly running Debian Linux! Linux vs. Windows is a no-Win situation....
