ive been trying to install ftp packages for the last couple of days or so and i think i missed unistalling one. i came to this assumption when i finished unistalling wu-ftpd and it said "one more remaining ftp left" or something like that.
is there a way to get a list of all the packages installed by apt-get?
me@MyAgony:~$ dpkg -l grep ftpd
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
ii grep 2.4.2-3 GNU grep, egrep and fgrep.
rc ftpd 0.17-13 FTP server
i chose the string ftpd because i noticed that ever ftp dameon has the string ftpd in it
so one would think after looking at that that ftpd would be installed
but take a look at this:
MyAgony:/home/me# apt-get remove ftpd
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package ftpd is not installed, so not removed
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
im a confused newbie can you make some sense out of that??
rc ftpd 0.17-13 FTP server
rc proftpd 1.2.4+1.2.5rc1 Versatile, virtual-hosting FTP daemon
rc proftpd-common 1.2.4+1.2.5rc1 Versatile, virtual-hosting FTP daemon
rc pyftpd 0.8.1 ftp daemon with advanced features
rc vsftpd 1.0.0-2 The Very Secure FTP Daemon
rc wu-ftpd 2.6.2-3woody2 powerful and widely used FTP server
I'm not at my debian machine right now but the "rc" in front means that those packages are not installed or half installed or something like that. When you removed them did you apt-get remove or apt-get purge? You might try apt-get purge to get all the files from those packages gone
