I removed the packages php4 & php4-common from my system.
But when I type 'dpkg -l |grep php', it lists the 'php4-common' package, with an 'rc' in the Status column.
What does the 'rc' stand for? The configuration files are still installed on the system-- does the 'rc' refer to the configuration files?
# dpkg -l | grep php
rc php4-common 4.3.10-15 Common files for packages built from the php
I've been looking and looking, and can't find this information in the manpage, the dpkg webpage or anywhere else ('dpkg rc' is not a good search string).
