  is there a log file that represents everything that happens when a
debian package is installed?  as an example, i did a fresh install of
5.0.2 without mysql, because i wanted to see the effect of installing
it afterwards.

  now that the system is up and running, i checked with:

  # apt-get --dry-run install mysql-server

to learn that 9 packages will be installed, and that 4 more are
suggested.  but after i do the install, is there a record of all of
this somewhere?  thanks.
