I am having a problem with dselect; the computer hung while installing software, and would not respond to control-c, to trying to log in on another console, nothing. I rebooted, and now dpkg, dselect and apt all hang when trying to do anything. Is there a file I can edit/nuke to fix this? I tried to recover by replacing /var/lib/dpkg/status with an earlier stored file, but this does not seem to make any difference. I could really use the help; thanks.
