Re: Dselect file list generation
May be you should try with
apt-get -s dselect-upgrade.
This should list both the new packages to be installed from scratch and the ones that need to be upgraded (together with the promise of configuring all of them).
I ran dselect on my home box last night and it wanted
to download 70Mb of files. This is ok given that I've
been using potato for a while without downloading.
Can I ask dselect (or dpkg) to generate a file list of
required files and then use that file list to
download the 70Mb at work, where we're on a fast connection?
I can burn a cd at work and bring it home. Then I'll just
do dpkg -i on the .deb files on the CDROM.
