Thanks dude. I need to get a slower internet connection so I can play
captris longer while capt does its download... ;-)
It's been too long since you used apt-get; I think you meant
apt-get update; apt-get install console-apt; cap; (update before install :)
Anyway, now that I've got it installed on my IA32 box (it's got broken deps
on powerpc :(, it doesn't seem to ever show anything about recommended or
suggested packages, though. I like how dselect lets you see the raw package
info if you want to. I read the man page and the online help but didn't see
anything about it.
