Re: dselect not working

hi colin,

the problem is that dselect is no longer found -- that is, I try to run it and the ocmmand line can't find the command (this istrue for root, oto, of course, I'm not quite so dense as to not try that). Here's the output of dpkg -l dpkg, which I must say sound ominous:

matt@anarres:~$ dpkg -l dpkg
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
ii dpkg 1.9.21 Package maintenance system for Debian

anyway, any further help appreciated...

dselect has stoppedworking on my woody installation. I've tried updating dpkg, also dpkg-reconfigure dpkg, but in neither case has anything changed (apt-get just tells me I already have the latest version). Any guess what's going wrong (or what extra info I need to provide to make sense of it)?

What version of the dpkg package are you running ('dpkg -l dpkg'), and
what exactly is going wrong?
