Yesterday I stumbled about files and dead symlinks left in
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/ on my Sid box. These files/symlinks seem to
have been shipped or created by:
kiki python-cairo python-crypto python-egenix-mxtools python-foomatic python-imaging python-imaging-sane python-ldap python-logilab-common python-mysqldb python-numarray python-pygresql python-reportlab python-xml
dpkg -S didn’t show any package
relationship nor did I find something in
reinstalling the above mentioned packages did not recreate the files/symlinks.
So it seems the directory can be safely removed. Maybe I missed some
announcement or one (or more) packages need to be fixed. No time to examine it
This is known as Debian bug #409390. Thanks to Josselin Mouette for the information.
