Bug#152220: apache2-mpm-prefork: fails to remove cleanly
I found this to be a very messy uninstall. The package should be
replaced ASAP before others are affected by it. Whatever you try with
dpkg/apt-get you will not be able to uninstall the package.
This seems to work: Back up /etc/apache2 if necessary (/var/www should
be OK but back up anyway).
Try purging all apache2 packages.
perform a dpkg --listfiles on the broken package.
Use your common sense in removing the appropriate directories. Don't do
anything insane like removing /usr or /usr/lib. Only those specifically
used by apache2.
You should now be able to properly uninstall (purge) the broken package.
If you wish, upgrade to the 2.0.39 packages available from here (place
these lines in /etc/apt/sources.list):
deb http://pandora.debian.org/~thom/apache2/ ./
deb-src http://pandora.debian.org/~thom/apache2 ./
So far they seem very good. I've only uncovered a problem with suexec so
