(just touch /tmp/foo and that list would be out of date...) A very inefficient way would be to get a listing of all files on your system (i.e. using find) and a listing of all packages under dpkg's control (i.e. using something like "dpkg -l | cut ... | xargs dpkg -L") and comparing the two. > (b) Differ from any default provided by a package > > ...? > > I guess that (b) would be impossible without consulting the original > .deb's, unless the system stores md5sums or something for all owned files. have a look at debsums. good times, -- Vineet http://www.anti-dmca.org Unauthorized use of this .sig may constitute violation of US law. echo Qba\'g gernq ba zr\! |tr 'a-zA-Z' 'n-za-mN-ZA-M'
