    apt problems


    Trying to use apt-get to install netatalk, I get the following:

    Code:
    G3:/var/log# apt-get install netatalk
    Reading Package Lists... Error!
    E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
    E: Error occured while processing python2.2-libxml2 (NewVersion1)
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.us.debian.org_debian_dists_stable_main_binary-powerpc_Packages
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
    This all started right after I ran apt-setup to have it look at http sources (it worked fine using just the CDROMs). Easy fix for this?

    Thankin' ya...

    it is because you are not allowing enough cache for apt. Try adding
    Code:
    APT::Cache-Limit "8388608";
    to
    Code:
    /etc/apt/apt.conf
    or make your /etc/apt/sources.list smaller

    I don't have a /etc/apt/apt.conf file. Is it okay to create one?
