Bug#494640: live-helper: Doesn't follow APT_RECOMMENDS settings in lh_chroot_sources
I have a strange feeling that this might be a 'feature'. When I ran 'lh_chroot_sources install'
(with all previous scripts run without errors) or any script which calls it, I found it was
installing packages I didn't request. With some investigation I found that it was doing an
apt-get dist-upgrade which was making it install recommended packages (I believe the default for apt?).
This was contrary to the file rootdir/config/common in which I had the line
which seemed to do the job for everything but this script. I think this is a bug, but in the past
I have simply misunderstood the correct function of a program and thought it was a bug. Please
tell me if the script is supposed to ignore this option.
