dselect vs apt-get
Here are quotes from "Debian 3.0 Release Notes":
The recommended method of upgrading is to
use the apt method with dselect ...
The built-in dependency analysis enables
smooth upgrades and easy installations.
This tool [dselect] makes safer decisions
about packages than apt-get.
Is this because dselect installs "recommends"
by default and apt-get does not, or, is there
some other more subtle reason?
But does not dselect call apt-get anyway?
Should one use dselect for all package adding/
removing, to avoid having apt-get work at
cross-purposes to dselect?
Any clarifications would be much appreciated.
