One of my servers here crashed, and instead of using linuxppc R4 again, I
tried debian. took me half of the night to get it up and running. I
started a big dselect download for the rest of the night in order to get
most of the packages I need, and this morning, everything was broken,
bash just segfaults.
Note that I'm using a mirror, but which seems to be updated daily, so
there is still a problem. I don't know debian very well, so if someone
could explain me how to get this machine back working (what should I
download/replace ?). dselect doens't work any more but I still have a
shell running, and I beleive I can still ftp some stuffs.
