We are using dpkg on Solaris to manage packages. I am having a
couple of difficulties.
1. I've built a package, but when I install it I get this error.
dpkg: warning, architecture `sun4u-sunos-5.8' not in remapping table
dpkg: error processing reng.cgiemail-1.6-v-1.deb (--install):
package architecture (sparc-sunos-5.8) does not match system (unknown)
Errors were encountered while processing:
How to clear this error?
> dpkg --print-architecture
/ms/bin/dpkg: warning, architecture `sun4u-sunos-5.8' not in remapping table
What is and where is the remapping table?
2. I installed this with --force-architecture. then in my testing I
removed it with 'dpkg -r reng.cgiemail' and it removed. It ALSO removed
all the other files that were in the same directory. What could i have
missed? Or, how can I prevent this.
