Privoxy installation error
Hi all. Im trying to install privoxy so i can use Tor. But i get this error when i dpkg the .deb file.


debian:/etc# dpkg -i privoxy_3.0.10-1_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 45053 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace privoxy 3.0.10-1 (using privoxy_3.0.10-1_i386.deb) ...

Unpacking replacement privoxy ...

dpkg: error processing privoxy (--install):

It says "No such file or directory" but isnt the .deb file supposed to create that dir? I even tried to remove the package by typing dpkg -r privoxy. Any suggestions as to how i should go about fixing this? Thanx in advance!

I resolved the situation by deleting everything, i was using dpkg -r when i should have been using dpkg -P.
