I use this command to get a list of all the packages that are manually
aptitude -F "%p" search \!~M~i~T
That includes essential packages, and doesn't include versions.
Did you manually installed the essential packages?
When Debian is first installed, all the installed packages are marked as
manually installed in aptitude, so that was already done.
So basically, I see no way of getting a list of my manually installed
packaged without debian's manually installed package.
And if I try to trick apt by telling him that all packages are
automatically installed except those i personnaly installed, aptitude
wants to uninstall them right away.
But I refined my question: how to get a list of the installed packages
that differs from the standard debian installation?
