Uninstalling programmes (debian)
I have recently bought an Asus 901 and installed all the updates, programs etc. I now find that when I try to uninstall a program I get the message 'dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.'
So I did some research on the web (having never used linux before and not being all that tech-savvy). I changed my status to a power-user and tried many different ways to uninstall 'Digital tv' and 'Ez Powerpen Jr' etc. I have mainly been trying out different codes using the Console Window: urpme '<digital tv>' or 'rpm -e digital tv' etc. as I can not locate the files directly using the File Manager. The error message I usually get is: 'bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'.'
I really want to know what else I can do as I have seemed to have exhausted the google search engine. lol
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

have you tried dpkg --configure -a already, as the error message suggested?
Also RPM won't work on Debian unless you install it. Debian uses apt-get and aptitude for downloading and installing packages.

su - apt-get clean all dpkg --configure -a
