Hi,

How can I get a list that I can shoot to a text file contining the installed
deb package list? Like rpm -qa in RedHat and mandrake?

Thanks.

Please email a copy.

Hmmm... in my version of 'dpkg' (1.6.14) it's "--get-selections" and
"--list" (read the manual page).

Yeah, what he said.

It's "--get-selections" to write current package list to stdout.  It's
"--set-selections" to read a list of desired packages from stdin (or
file).  Makes cloning a particular package set fairly easy.

dpkg -l is the concise shorthand.
