How to remove exim4 when aptitude doesnt think its installed?
How should I go about removing files relating to the exim4 package, when
aptitude doesn't think the package is installed?
Let me explain...
I have restored a crashed system by first doing a Debian base install
and then restoring the file system from backup over the top. The result
has been a fully functional system. (yay!)
But I have a few files left over from the Debian base install which
should no longer be present, for instance files relating to the exim4
I had previously replaced exim4 with postfix, but because the file
system restore process only creates and over-writes files, but doesn't
deletes unnecessary ones, the exim4 files remain.
I cannot use aptitude to remove the package's files as normal because
aptitude's state has been restored from backup along with everything
else; it doesn't think the package is installed.
Many Thanks, Andy
