Re: Several packages fail to install, exit status 10

Having gotten no response on the posting below, I'll just ask if anyone can tell me how to find out what an "error exist status [number]" is.

Several weeks ago I had a failure trying to uninstall gdm on a sid box. Since then, I've been unable to install or uninstall [x|w|g]dm, and several other packages have started failing on install. I've been doing a dselect update/install just about every day, hoping that whatever's broken will get fixed, but so far nothing, and I haven't found any helpful information via dogpile or google. Anyone have a solution?

Here's an example of the error:


Removing xdm ...

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Some errors occurred while unpacking. I'm going to configure the
packages that were installed. This may result in duplicate errors
or errors caused by missing dependencies. This is OK, only the errors
above this message are important. Please fix them and run [I]nstall again
