Replying to myself, yes. That does work. It makes the main list a bit ugly though. It also is truncated and spaced oddly, but that's something I'm betting I can reduce with proper use of width and spacing specifications. Daniel, would you be terribly averse to a wishlist bug to make a separate configuration option for this? Also, does anyone know a good way to make aptitude display the section(topdir) in the UI? I don't have all my package lists using that as a grouping (e.g. the "Recommended but will NOT be installed" part of the preview window), and I think you would be nice to see "[main]" or "[non-free]" next to some of the suggestions. Thanks for your help, Daniel. I didn't see any other replies, but if you sent one, you get a thanks for the effort. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
