wierd dpk package message Solved.


I was able to fix this problem.

The statoverride file resides in /var/lib/dpkg

For some reason, it had the following entry:

hplip root 755 /var/run/hplip

The file statoverride-old was empty

I performed radical surgery and made statoverride-old into statoverride.

So, the maintainer of hplip might want to look at this.

I'm pasting my original post for debian-devel


I'm using a 32-bit chroot on an amd64 etch box. I have installed cups
and associated packages, especially the hplip. Now, when I'm installing
perl, I get the error:

dpkg: syntax error: unknown user `hplip' in statoverride file

What the ??
