Clearing house

Recently, while testing version 2 of the excellent Regolith Linux, there was an update which broke my desktop. Not unexpected seeing as this isn't ready for general consumption yet.

I dutifully removed the regolith packages and re-installed them, only to get the same error as before.

After removing them a second time, I noticed that the packages were listed in `apt` in the `residual config` state, which Debian uses to indicate that the old config is still hanging around.

A search and test later, the following command helped to remove all packages in that state:

for i in `dpkg -l | grep ^rc | cut -d" " -f3`
do
sudo dpkg --purge $i
done

Then my system was ready to reinstall and run error-free once more.
