Re: manually purge .deb file
hello, i compiled firefox from source and made a .deb file via alien. while
installing the deb file i hit cancel, somehow i cannot remove this file,
dpkg , aptitute or apt-get says that my firefox packet should be removed but
no file related to my firefox packet,
how can i completely purge it ?
0 packages upgraded, 29 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 37.3MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] y

E: I wasn't able to locate a file for the firefox-1.5.en-us.linux package.
This might mean you need to manually fix this package. (due to missing arch)
E: Couldn't lock list directory..are you root?
I'm not 100% sure (you don't provide the command you used to actually
install the package), but I would try:
dpkg --purge firefox-1.5.en-us.linux
