Hi there!

After I was installing something I didn't get apt-get update or any install working anymore...I always get:

----- dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting: files list file for package "raspi-config" contains empty filename
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2) ------

I'm stuck here :( anyone could please help me with this??

thanx so much,
plus

If it were me, I'd pull off the stuff in /etc I'd tweaked and reburn the image on the SD card. Often the easiest way with a mangled file system.
Don't judge Linux by the Pi.......

I'd prefer to try something before doing this... I had a lot of stuff already configured....what about trying to replace only the file raspi-config??

what did you install
how did you install it
what do the package files look like
what does raspi-config script look like

let me see...

I made this:
- sudo apt-get install python python-pycurl python-crypto unrar tesseract-ocr tesseract-ocr-eng
then BY MISTAKE I made on another line:
- python-imaging spidermonkey-bin
then:
- sudo dpkg -i pyload-cli.deb

my raspi-config copy and paste:
