A simple question
May be, I'm very stupid, but I don't understand why
boot-floppies package depends of very big list of
Depends: dpkg-dev, gcc, glibc-pic, slang1-pic, makedev, libnewt-dev,
v, zlib1g-dev, recode, make, gettext, m4, lynx, debiandoc-sgml,
-perl, man-db, libpaperg, tetex-bin, tetex-extra, perl5, libwww-perl,
, libgd1g-dev, bison, ash, dpkg-awk, flex, file, rsync, python-xml,
I see, some of this packages really need, but other...
I want to know for that:
What these packages do in creating boot-floppies process?
Why I must install TeTeX for creating boot-floppies?
With best wishes,
