Re: libc6 2.3.2
I have some more information.
All installations (network/cdrom) want to overwrite the libc6
at some stage, even if you say 'n'. This overwriting process
then fails which means that nothing extra can then by installed
either with apt-get or by dpkg from a CDROM.
Towards the end of installation you are told that libc6 2.2.5-11.8
will be replaced with 2.3.2.ds1-22, then 'do you want to upgrade
libc now?' Either 'y' or 'n' gives the cryptic message:
dpkg error processing
subprocess pre-installation script returned exit status 1.
It's cryptic because it doesn't say what's wrong, or how to fix
it. No amount of 'apt-get' or 'dpkg -i' fixes the problem.
It would appear that the Debian MIPS distribution currently
will not install on a clean system.
