Re: installation oddities

dpkg-deb: wait for tar failed: Function not implemented

Whee, you still hit a corrupted binary. I've heard a rumour things
work better if you compile dpkg with -O0 on powerpc.

dpkg is written in c++ (surprise, surprise).
The g++ packages have broken dependencies, and I can not install them.

I would strongly discourage to use c++ in any "base" package.

Any chance that these messages of mine will be post to the dpkg
mailing list? I would expect a far cry in both dpkg and ppc lists,
but things are surprisingly quiet. Are you using "unstable" at all?
