While installing the latest 0.9.1 on a 715/75 machine over a serial
line, the installation halted with this error message:

 /var/cache/apt/archives/tar_1.13.19-1_hppa.deb...          EXT2-fs
error (device sd(8,3)): ext2_write_inode: unable t9

it looks truncated. I can't provide more error messages. Are there other
virtual consoles under the installed? if so, how do you switch to them?
I'm using minicom on an X terminal.
