I've installed from frozen, and run dselect a couple of times
to snag interesting or "oops, needed that" packages since. I've
found that each time, dselect selects for download many, many
packages that are of the same version as presently installed.
Usually, these are the big ones as well. No wonder the FTP site
is so often busy.
Question time: Is there any trouble I can get into by changing
whole sections with "="? Is this the keystroke, as it seems to
be, to "don't download it, leave it alone"?
It seems that dselect, while correctly detecting the version
locally and remotely, isn't making any distinction between what
is already loaded and what is on the FTP site. This would seem
to me to be a usefull and basic distinction, a reason for the
creation of the dselect program and package system in the first
What am I missing?
