package installation
 
I installed alpine-dbg using apt-get install alpine-dbg. Everything looked
O.K. but when I ran dpkg -l alpine-dbg I got:

| Status=Not/Installed/Config-f/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/t-aWait/T-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err:
uppercase=bad

Can someone explain what is going on? Thanks.

That output is always there when you run dpkg -l <package>

The relevant lines follow that. and should begin with " ii " if the package
is correctly installed. So, as an example,

dpkg -l sylpheed

Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
| 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 sylpheed 2.4.7-1 sylpheed is a fast mail client using gtk-2

Shows that "sylpheed" is properly installed on my machine.

Thanks. This is my first debian based distro and I'm still on the learning
curve.
