Bug#158862: dpkg: Remove files from /usr/local... which are in installed package
I sometimes have the problem, that I want to install a recent version of a program, but there is no
debian-package available at this time. So I install a tar.gz and the files will be placed in
When later there is a debian-package available the same files will be placed in /usr...
but the files in /usr/local... are still there and can produce problems when the PATH variable is
set appropriate. Additionally disk space is wasted when the files remain in /usr/local...
An option to activate this feature would be nice.
Greetings, Martin Bammer
