[vox-tech] gcc 3.3 woes debian sarge (testing) on ppc



(also posted to debian-ppc)

Hi everyone,

I recently installed sarge testing onto my powerbook G3. (which previously
ran woody/stable quite well, albeit with old packages..)

i have most things working, however there seems to be no compiler!
I noticed that when i installed that there was no option for development
stuff 
in tasksel... could this have been forshadowing of what was to come?

i noticed that gcc-3.3-base was installed, but the actual compiler
collection 
was not..

so after an apt-get install gcc-3.3 i am left with a bunch of dpkg errors...
(see below)

i was able to install gcc-3.2 and thus make a cimple C program compile...
however i need to compile C++ programs, and thus needed g++ installed

i tried 'apt-get install g++' -- and i was again confronted with the same
gcc-3.3 related errors...

furthermore, i am not able to install autoconf or the like, as they all
depend 
on gcc-3.3

is there any way to get a complete C/C++ development system working on
Sarge/testing for PPC? ... or should i move to unstable...?

thanks in advance!

Dylan

here is a listing of what dpkg thinks that i have installed:
