just need a touch of clarification -- i want to build a new lenny
box with the same packages as an existing one. so i can see the first
part of the recipe:
# dpkg --get-selections > preserve.file
-- new, minimal install --
# dpkg --set-selections < preserve.file
but what after that? i've seen various suggestions:
# aptitude update, then aptitude safe-upgrade
# apt-get dselect-upgrade
and on, and on.
so, once i do the "dpkg --set-selections", what's after that?
