        I have downloaded a binary packaged (compiled for Mac OSX) for Fink.
The instruction from the website is to perform the following command:

    "dpkg -i acedb_4_9l-1_darwin-powerpc.deb"

When I do that, I got the following message:

> [borcim58:~/acedb/acedb.macosx] chia% sudo dpkg ­i
> (Reading database ... 30921 files and directories currently installed.)
> Unpacking acedb (from acedb_4_9l-1_darwin-powerpc.deb) ...
> dpkg-deb (subprocess): short read in buffer_copy (failed to write to pipe in
> dpkg-deb: subprocess paste returned error exit status 2
> dpkg: error processing acedb_4_9l-1_darwin-powerpc.deb (--install):

> Errors were encountered while processing:
> acedb_4_9l-1_darwin-powerpc.deb
> [borcim58:~/acedb/acedb.macosx] chia%

I don¹t really understand the error message so I really don¹t know how to
trouble shoot.

I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!! Please reply to me directly too
as I am not subscribed to the list. Thanks so much.
