Bug#324795: libc6 in stable broken on arm4vl


I was upgrading from woody to sarge when apt-get choked on upgrading libc6 from 2.2.5-11.8 to 2.3.2.ds1-22 with a message along the lines of 'can't seek in file xxxxxx'. dmesg would report 'Bad number of arguments for llseek()' (paraphrasing) every so often. It was impossible to reserve the package install.

Did you try to upgrade from woody to sarge?  Or from sarge to the
current sid?  Please imagine 2.3.2.ds1-22 is broken - many arm users
cannot use their machine.

The machine is 3,000 km away from me in a sub-basement. It's dead. It's nail-the-dead-parrot-to-it's-perch dead.

Linux jill 2.2.19 #1 Tue Dec 25 13:58:22 GMT 2001 armv4l unknown

This kernel is not the standard debian supported kernel - it seems a
bit old.  Can you try newer kernel with glibc 2.3.2.ds1-22?

2.2.19 is the last kernel that I've run without problems; the machine had an uptime of 221 days when I tried to upgrade. Getting someone to access the machine is non-trivial and is going to require shipping the computer. I won't be able to try anything for a few weeks until I get access to the machine.

llseek bad argument is the most common error message.

Could you show us some examples of your messages?
