Re: Trouble installing on a 7500/100

Hm. Yeah, I think it might be something wrong with my machine, because I 
get all kinds of strange errors when I try to manually install any of the 
downloaded deb's - things like "couldn't find lib<strangecharacter>.x.x.x" 
- I think my machine is corrupting data pretty massively. Oh well, 
whatever. It's a worthless old piece of junk anyway :)

How big is your root partition? Do you have all your partitions
mounted while installing? One possibility is the installer running out
of room on your partition. You could check this by executing df in a
shell after the error.

I checked the md5sum of the archive file, and it's correct; it also
unpacks without error.
