Any released branch (ie the categories branch) should _ALWAYS_ work
100%. HEAD may from time to time be broken, and if that happens, drop a

Hmm, methinks I've broken something. What options are you selecting as

You can setup a local mirror, by changing the URL that the mirrors.lst

As for this problem, try running setup under gdb and seeing whats going
