Help, I hosed my machine's software selection :-(
I made teh stupid mistake of copying /etc/apt/sources from one machine to another.
Problem is, I did not copy the preferences file also, and the new sources had a line
I then used dselect, and it upgraded 200= packages!
At the monent, my system's pretty hosed (gnome does not work at all for instance).
I have pretty decent Amanda backups. Is there some way that I can restore
the system to wgere it was before? Either by using tha Amanda backups (but won't that muck up
the Debian packages databse?) Or somehow get dselect or apt-get to resoter it to where it was
