Looks like my apt cache had been corrupted. I removed the
file, and ran
This command ended with the following message:
Reading Package Lists... Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occured while processing xt-sdf2-dev (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
I commented out the following line from sources.list
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
removed pkgcache.bin once more, and did apt-get update.
