i think i'm all set for now; i found a dotpup package of 2.10.11, and it seems to work well enough for me.  i found it at , and i downloaded (but didn't seem to need to install) the optional python add-on pup.

i'd still like to know what i did to cause the original problem, though...

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

i've searched the archives and found this thread, but
the solution seems to be in french, and my languages are english and german.

my python version is:
# python
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Aug 15 2006, 19:02:50)
[GCC 3.4.4] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

what other info can i post?  i've used and installed lilypond on this and
other platforms before; this is the first time i've had trouble.


This may or may not solve your installation problem, but you should consider trying the latest development release 2.11.65 since it's actually more stable than 2.10.33 at this point.  In fact it will become the latest stable release 2.12 very soon.  It's at least worth a try to download 2.11.65 and see if the installation proceeds correctly.
