how do you use apt-file?
I'm trying to use 'apt-file find pg_resetxlog' and it returns nothing

Well, I know something put that file there because I installed it using aptitude.
I *really* need to find that file, pg_resetxlog.
apt-file search (filename)
If you're just trying to find a file on your system, use locate.
tried to download some huge Contents.gz files, so I purged apt-file. If
diffs were produced of Contents.gz files so that subsequent "apt-file
update" runs were relatively brief, it would be ok, but downloading huge
Contents.gz files every time one runs "apt-file update" seems
inefficient and is more than what my internet connection can stand.
To find file names in standard Debian packages, one can do a search on
What I'd like to be able to do is specify some non-standard repositories
(eg www.debian-multimedia.org), and have apt-file download the
Contents.gz files for those, and use packages.debian.org to search for
files in standard Debian packages (main/contrib/non-free).
