Package: libgstreamer0.8-0
Version: 0.8.9-2
Severity: important

One of my m68k buildds is trying to build libgstreamer-perl_0.04-1, but
since over 12 hours it is stuck with:

Setting up libgstreamer0.8-0 (0.8.11-1) ...

This is not the first time this is happening on m68k, this is where it hangs:

root      1760  0.0  0.8  2008 1088 ?        SN   Oct28   0:00 sh /var/lib/dpkg/info/libgstreamer0.8-0.postinst configure

I usually kill the offending script, but this is very annoying:

/var/lib/dpkg/info/libgstreamer-plugins0.8-0.postinst: line 10:  3800 Killed                  GST_REGISTRY=/var/lib/gstreamer/0.8/registry.xml gst-register-0.8 >/dev/null
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libgstreamer-plugins0.8-0.postinst: line 10:  3804 Killed                  GST_REGISTRY=/var/lib/gstreamer/0.8/registry.xml gst-compprep-0.8 >/dev/null

It probably hangs again here:
Setting up gstreamer0.8-oss (0.8.11-2)

and here:
Setting up gstreamer0.8-misc (0.8.11-2)

Is there a way to install (and deinstall, IIRC the same thing happens again
during package removal) streamer normally on m68k or does it really take
more than 12h to setup?
