I tried Zdevil's debian-rootfs (eabi) first. Installed fine to my SL-C3100,
but soon after installing a few debs from official mirror, dependency
problems made apt so broken that I could not install anything more.
First time ever I used sid, I've been running stable Debians on my
desktop pc's for years. I thought, it was just unstable sid.

So tried titchy, then oabi kernels, but they all led to the same
result. Errors that apt gives all usually something like "chown:changing
ownership of file n\465\235 [or any arbitary x\nnn\nnn]: No such file
or directory". Funny thing is, when I execute post-install script of
problematic .deb line by line, works then like it should.

Thought microdrive was dying, changed to cf-card. Did not help.
Next thought, Z's "hd-driver-chip" is corrupted, Bought another
used SL-C3100, but I'm still where I started.

I really cant get it, what causes this? Any hint appreciated.

I suggest checking that your partitioning setup is correct - it's possible to make it so that multiple partitions partially overlap each other or extend past the actual size of the device, which can cause all sorts of intermittent and cumulative problems.
