Re: How to maintain a network of workstations via dselect?

There are flags to dpkg to make it export the list of selected packages
and then re-import it. Try "dpkg --get-selections > selection_list", and
then "dpkg --set-selections < selection_list" on another workstation. This
will do your package selection, but will _not_ install the packages or answer
install-time questions. We have a plan of action for dealing with that aspect
of the problem, but I can't give you a completion date at this time.


Can you get your operating system fixed when you need it?
