I would assume so, but perhaps the Slackware version exists in another
directory that is in the path before the Debian one.  Check
www.debian.org to see if there is info about installing Debian over
Slackware.  Also, "which tar" are you using?

Actually, the verify indicates that not all packages were retrieved.
However, even the ones retrieved okay are causing seg-faults.

                                 ( bcwhite@bnr.ca )

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
