Please take a look on the syslog of the installer and if possible
attach it to this
bug report (please, gzip it).

The syslog file of a failed install has been sent to the 520711 bug report.

I glanced at it, but I'm not a d-i guru (just a [usually] happy user). The only thing I noticed was a few occurrences of

Mar 25 03:36:30 main-menu[695]: DEBUG: resolver (libc6-udeb): package doesn't exist (ignored) Mar 25 03:36:30 main-menu[695]: DEBUG: resolver (libc6): package doesn't exist (ignored)

But they are probably harmless because they were followed eventually by

Mar 25 03:36:36 anna[3512]: DEBUG: retrieving libc6-udeb 2.9-4

so something else will be needed to explain the seg-fault in wget.

This particular installation attempt was done on a network that did have DHCP, so the syslog shows it succeeding -- no manual network configuration was required. From this I assume I can deduce that the network was up and working, so it's not a matter of having the wrong (or no) network driver...

Hope it helps...


PS: I assume that Otavio and Alexander are subscribed to the PowerPC list or the 520711 bug report (or both) so I've trimmed them off the CC list.
