I couldn't figure out how to use dpkg.  I ran dselect and could scroll
through packages seing status.  The only thing I saw out of place was:

libdevmapper  removed      required
volumeid         not installed important

Ah.  OK.  Now I understand why we're doing this.

Before I posted the first message, I did a grep of everything in
/var/log for "error" and couldn't find anything.  I see the lines
below in dmesg, but I don't understand any of it
