libc6 2.2-8 (error came when trying to upgrading to 2.2-10)
kernel 2.4.0-test11 (self compiled, plain release, no extra patches)
Machine is an SS5 (sun4m)
When I ran the upgrade, dpkg was first upgraded from 1.7.something to
the 22.214.171.124 that's running now. It was able to install a few more
packages, before it came to libc6-dev, where it crashed. I've checked
with the debug option on dpkg several times, that it crashes on the
exact same place.
