How do I know all the files that some package uses? And how do I know all the packages that some package uses as dependencies?
With 'apt-get' command.

I have a relatively basic install of debian lenny, and
is missing. the package it was supposed to come with (util-linux) is installed. tried a reinstall of that package, but no difference.
many software packages depend on logger to be working. i am confused.
I wasn't sure if this belonged here or in Software, sorry if its the wrong place.
Does e16 and e17 use the same dependencies?
I have e16 installed, can't really get it going well but it has all the dependencies, and I just found a great comprehensive guide to e17, so I'm going to upgrade if the same dependencies are needed. Anyone know?
Its not in the repo's. Its not in anything online that actually works. If i download the pack i either have the older versions of required packages or I dont have them all together. Now i cant get on any of the servers I did before because they upgraded, and I cant.
i have recently installed opengeu which is based upon ubuntu 8.04 but i need the deb package for the latest kernel as my terminal rejects any attempt of making it and without the kernel my net and few other bit dont work.
if anyone could send me a link to it i would be most grateful
Tired of not knowing anything except Windows. Bought a Dell mini with Ubuntu 8.04 installed on it and I'm working on learning Unix from the command line. This Forum ought to be helpful once I get a little further along.
After going from Debian Lenny to squeeze, everything was going OK,apart from 8 broken packages of which I was easily able to fix 7 of the packages.The last one is x-org core, which comes up with the error message /var/cache/apt/archives/udev_150-2_i386.deb returned an error.
I installed a package that now prevents my using Synaptic and otherwise blocks updates etc.
I have tried the partial upgrade scenario but it won't remove it.
I used - apt-get -f install (bad file name)
The response I get is - The package (bad filename) needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
