    apt-get update error ! ! !


    when i run apt-get update i get this error at the end

    Reading package lists... Error!
    E: Couldn't make mmap of 12582912 bytes - mmap (22 Invalid argument)
    W: Unable to munmap
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    i also tried to make the cache bigger with "apt-get update -o APT::Cache-Limit=25165824" but no result.

    FYI: my debian is running on an ARM from atmel (AT91SAM9260).
