st: non-normal residual

Dear statlist

I have a cross-section multiple regression: however,
- Y is not distributed normally (some say it should be; some say it is not needed! where is the truth? I read residuals must be normally distributed, not the Y...)
- any tranformation of Y does not allow to approach a normal-distribution
- beyond Y, residuals are non-normally distributed

Any suggestions on how to handle this situation?
