I have file_5.04-5 installed and it does not contain /etc/magic.mime. Sounds like it may be an architecture-specific oversight. You might try downloading the libmagic1_5.04-5 .deb file and installing it directly with dpkg. There should be a specific --force-option to ignore file conflicts. You might also try checking the BTS, including closed bugs. If the problem hasn't already been reported, it probably should be. If it has, they might have a better work around. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
