Any ideas what would cause a segmentation fault while untar’ing a file? I’m not sure if it’s running out of diskspace or not — the untar process runs for a long time on that file, so that could be it, but there is nothing else (besides the default stuff) on that partition. The only other thing I noticed was that a lot of the files coming out of the failing tar were PowerPC related — I have the MIPS version, but I can’t see how that would have any effect. They’re just files being extracted at that point…

The other thing is that if you are dumping binaries for a different architecture over the top of existing binaries (wonder if that’s the case or not), then that might explain why it’s not happy.

Here’s something, which might be enough to get debian up on it.
