Re: [Help] How to fix a buggy prerm script in sarge? (was: Bug#338638: tetex-base: dies when /usr/local/ read-only)

  If your old prerm fails, the new prerm should be called with
"failed-upgrade" as its first argument (see Policy 6.4 and 6.5),
so you can do any necessary workarounds there.  Errors in postrm
are handled similarly.
