Default TPS Debian 3.1 Observations


Here are some observations that i made while installing the debian sarge distro
according to the howto:

Net :: DNS failed badly , that is version Net-DNS-0.56.
No reason whatshow ever.

Fix: i downloaded :

And did a:

perl Makefile.PL
make install

Now my second observation.

Some software will be uninstalled by the 'apt-get remove' method.
The software seems to be uninstalled, but only if:

dpkg -P <package>

is used, then all the files and al kind registrations in the apt database are cleanly removed.

This boils down to :
dpkg -P lpr nfs-common portmap pidentd pcmcia-cs pppoe pppoeconf ppp pppconfig
dpkg -P exim4-base exim4-config
dpkg -P uw-imapd qpopper ipopd

Now all the junk leftovers are cleanly removed

Just My € 0.02
