i found a lot of websites explaining how to save the list of installed
packages, to be used after a fresh install for example. there is a lot
of packages that i don't want to install, i can simply delete their
names from the list, but their dependencies will still get installed,
and as far as i understand, apt will consider them manually installed
packages, so i don't think "apt-get autoremove" will remove them, or am
i wrong? in which case, it's all i need to know :P
otherwise, is there a way to save a list of packages i manually
specified to apt? i usually ask for a package and apt automatically
install dependencies, is there a way to get a list of these packages i
thanks in advance
