On system using RPM packages you can verify all installed file against
a checksum
to see what files have been changed. Perhaps there is a similar function for deb
packages? I would try to read some documentation on the deb packages system to
see if there is such function and if post how on this list as i would
like to know that to.
Or perhaps there is some on the list that already has a answer?
