Any error messages? Or does it just hang? Maybe it's waiting for input, i.e. 
it spawned some interactive part which is now waiting. If you can log into the 
box you might see subprocesses of dpkg.

May I ask why this package is unpacked/installed AFTER the reboot? Wouldn't it 
be better if this was done by FAI?
