Perhaps this is not a debian-live specific question, but I have encountered the problem when building debian-live images, so here we go. here is the depends of the pdfjam package: $ apt-cache depends pdfjam pdfjam |Depends: tetex-extra Depends: texlive-latex-recommended |Depends: tetex-extra Depends: texlive-fonts-recommended since tetex-extra depends on all the texlive-lang-* packages, I would prefer to install a custom set of texlive packages (including, of course, texlive-latex-recommended and texlive-fonts-recommended, which pdfjam depends on). But even after explicitly choosing the following packages to install, aptitude pulls in tetex-extra: pdfjam texlive-lang-swedish texlive texlive-base texlive-base-bin texlive-bibtex-extra texlive-common texlive-doc-base texlive-font-utils texlive-fonts-extra texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-generic-recommended texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-extra texlive-latex-recommended texlive-math-extra texlive-pictures texlive-pstricks texlive-publishers texlive-humanities texlive-latex3 Does the order of the packages in "Depends:" matter? If so, then I guess it is a bug in pdfjam to have tetex-extra (which pulls in about 600 MB) first in the list. Would it help if I installed the texlive packages first, and in a second run installed pdfjam?
