Re: Best way to prune my installation
Thank you Aoki-san.
I know I can do this with dselect but the problem is that the default
installation is several hundred packages and manually saying what you do NOT
want is very long.
I had hoped that with debfoster or something similar I could say what I want
(the list of packages I really need) and have only them and their
prerequisites being installed.
Take care. Bob
