Am I right in thinking that
grep -v '^#'
means 'print lines that do not start with #'
So I take it you rem out some lines in the packages file, and this
expression ignores them?
(And am I right in thinking that the ` ` signs around the expression
after "install" are produced by the key to the left of the 1/! key on
the top line of the keyboard?)
