'Debian : purge packages marked with rc status'
categories: - Debian/Ubuntu
Packages with rc status are not completely removed from the system, configuration files are still present.
If you have a bunch of rc packages you need to purge, as root, type :
dpkg --list |grep "^rc" | cut -d " " -f 3 | xargs sudo dpkg --purge
