Re: lost dig

Sorry, was a little quick on that.

Like said, the (ISC) DNS lookup utility 'dig' is part of the package 'dnsutils'.
I do not have an alias set or an alternatives record for this.
Do you have a '/etc/alternatives/dig'? If yes, deleting it should be fine, as long as  /usr/bin/dig exists
