Re: Debian base system package list
Thanks for the info. It seems that all those would give me the info I
want. I was thinking that I would be able to get that info from the
actual build files of the Debian distribution itself, does there exists
such a beast?
I'm trying to compile a list packages that are common to 'base systems'
of various Linux distributions. I initially thought that the Linux
Standard Base would provide that list but it only consists of "lower
level" utilities/libraries and not software tools per se.

the easiest way:
apt-get install grep-dctrl
and then do something like:
grep-aptavail -F Essential yes -o -F Priority required -s Package
grep-aptavail -F Essential yes -o -F Priority required -o \
-F Priority standard -s Package
depending on what it is exactly that you want (the fine manpage has more
info). if you want all the packages part of a basic debian
installation, the second one is probably closer.
alternatively, you could run the installer, not select any software, and
then run "dpkg -l" from the cmdline :)
