While installing a box, it happened that apt-get would segfault upon
install. Suspecting memory issues first, we tried quite a few things, before coming across a blogentry: a corrupt
pkgcache was to blame. One should simply remove it and start over again:
cd /var/cache/apt rm pkgcache.bin srcpkgcache.binUnfortunately, we didn't save the corrupt files, so we cannot even open a bug.
