How do I get a list of the packages I currently have installed?

`dpkg -l | egrep ^ii`

It'd be really nice if I could find out when they were installed too.

I don't think this information is kept.

If you always use aptitude, then /var/log/aptitude keeps the information.

dpkg --get-selections

dpkg -L your-package-name

That will only tell you what packages are installed and what files a
packages installed, respectively.  Neither of thise tells you *when* a
package was installed.

Whoops, misread the pronoun.

How about

ls -la /var/cache/apt/archives/



There are places I'll remember, all my life, though some have changed, like Debian Linux
