    Hi Shridhar,

    I guess, issue is

    120802 3:12:24 InnoDB: Using Linux native AIO
    /usr/sbin/mysqld: Can't create/write to file '/tmp/ibwe8axu' (Errcode: 13)
    120802 3:12:24 InnoDB: Error: unable to create temporary file; errno: 13

    $ perror 13
    OS error code 13: Permission denied

    Please set proper permissions for /tmp partition, mysql might not create/write file in that partition also try to install with sudo/root. As Installation is not completed successfully, it gives error for dpkg too.

      Thanks a lot, I rather forgot about this post, its been a long time. I am installing Percona on the Instacompute VPS, I guess the ISO's they provide do not have full root access. Infact ever since I posted this, I tried installing several other apps using apt, and everything that required setting a password failed! So I guess I'll have to move to another VPS if the chaps at Instacompute do not provide complete root access. Thanks once again. In the last two years of being a VPS customer, this is the first time I am facing such an issue.
