stretch upgrade from jessie

Postby whiteapache » June 21st, 2017, 7:57 pm

after the upgrade when I perform a dpkg --verify I have two suspect files:

/etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml

and

/etc/perl/sitecustomize.pl

I'am sure I have never touch theses files, so ????
I have made the same upgrade on virtual machine and this happen too.
Anyone with an answer ?

You can check packages.debian.org to see which packages those belong to or do something like:

Code: Select all
$ dpkg -S /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
$ dpkg -S /etc/perl/sitecustomize.pl


This should show what they belong to.

Then assuming you've made no local changes you want to keep... just reinstall those from a trusted Debian repository and check again.

Tanks for the answer but I have made a clean install where I want to be sure of safety.
I can see that the system is now more reactive and there is no issue at all now .
But this doesn't solve the question of why or/and how this happens ?

A "clean install" certainly doesn't. It wipes away the evidence.
