DPKG & "files list file for package `pkg-config' contains empty filename" error FIXED


I wonder what causes this?

angelpc:/mnt/win_h/1lin/debs# dpkg -i zlib1g_1.2.2-3_i386.deb
(Reading database ... dpkg: error processing zlib1g_1.2.2-3_i386.deb (--install):
files list file for package `pkg-config' contains empty filename
Errors were encountered while processing:
zlib1g_1.2.2-3_i386.deb
Processing was halted because there were too many errors.
angelpc:/mnt/win_h/1lin/debs#

It happens these days on every deb packet what I try to install...
Any solution what causes this
I'm using Debian Testing Sarge. PKG-Config is 0.15.0.

Hmm
angelpc:/home/angel# pkg-config --list-all
gmodule GModule - Dynamic module loader for GLib
gdk GDK - GIMP Drawing Kit
Package gobject-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gobject-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gobject-2.0', required by 'GdkPixbuf Xlib', not found
angelpc:/home/angel#

I think this causes the problem But how to fix it

I think its fixed now with this command ->
rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/pkg-config.list

Huh what a relief
