can't upgrade from stable to testing/unstable (Bus error)


I just installed debian stable (woody) on my 'new' indy. No problems so far.

But now I want to upgrade to debian testing. This doesn't work because of
problems caused by removing the old version of libc6 (error exit status 5).

What I did (after changing /etc/apt/sources.list) is:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

This causes the following error message:
WARNING: System V message queues require kernel 2.4.22 to
work correctly on this architecture. Some programs
(including perl) may not operate correctly.
Unpacking replacement libc6 ...
dpkg: warning - old post-removal script returned error exit status 5
dpkg - trying script from the new package instead ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.3.2.ds1-10_mips.deb
 subprocess new post-removal script returned error exit status 5
dpkg: error while cleaning up:
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 255
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

When I type
dpkg -D2 --install /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.3.2.ds1-10_mips.deb

I get these messages:
Unpacking replacement libc6 ...
D000002: fork/exec /var/lib/dpkg/info/libc6.postrm (dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.3.2.ds1-10_mips.deb (--install):
 dpkg: warning - old post-removal script killed by signal (Bus error)

The same happens, when I try to upgrade to debian unstable.

My machine is a R4400-200MHz Indy running kernel 2.4.16.

What can I do ?
Has anybody installed testing or unstable on an Indy ??
