What do each of the details in dpkg -l mean?
I have never paid attention to the output produced by the command
dpkg -l and noticed it includes descriptors which I can't seem to locate detailed information for in the
man pages nor online. The only resource I have come across is http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-Lists/Ubuntu/2006-06/msg02943.html
So when I run the command
dpkg -l it produces the following output (excerpt)
rc vorbis-tools 1.4.0-1ubuntu1 several Ogg Vorbis tools ii w32codecs 1:20110131-0.1 win32 binary codecs ii wamerican 6-3 American English dictionary words for /usr/s ii wbritish 6-3 British English dictionary words for /usr/sh
I know that
ii refers to installed but what does
rc refer to and what does it mean? What other descriptors are there and what do they mean?
