Re: Why do I need all these apt-howto-* files?

Hi, actually I had the same problem as Ron, so I followed the apt-get
remove procedure you described. Unfortunately I came accross this problem:

I removed apt-howto, a series of translated apt-howtos fine. However 
the brasilian/portuguese version of apt-howto won't uninstall.

even:~# dpkg -l | grep apt-how
ii  apt-howto-en   1.7.6-4        A Guide to APT
ii  apt-howto-pt-b 1.7.6-4        A Guide to APT
even:~# apt-get remove apt-howto-pt-b                     
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package apt-howto-pt-b

Using "Aptitude" however I managed to uninstall it.
Is that because of a mismatch in naming of the package of the pt-b

Another question.
I am continuing to get this error report when I install doc files...

dhelp_parse: no title found for directory doc
dhelp_parse: no title found for directory help

What should I do there?
I don't think to have broken dependencies... (how can I check out for

Thank you.
