FYI, I have a box with Debian lenny on it (downloaded from debian, not
"Oberon") and the mc is fine.
I also work on TWO (2) seperate VPS servers via ssh, unassociated with one
another and not maintained by me, on a daily basis, and the mc on BOTH of these
runs flawlessly. If I recall correctly, I actually installed the mc with
apt-get on one of the them, since I am the only one that uses it, and it was a
standard, problem free installation.
Debian isn't my first choice of distros, but I think anyone who has serious
difficulty with it has come to the table with *the wrong attitude*, because it
is comparitively simple, and comparitively well-documented IMO. I picked it up
mostly to work on those vps servers and generally find their system quick and
easy to use and understand.
Just some thoughts.
