Debian :: List Only Non-automatic Installed Packages?

Apr 20, 2016

How do you list only installed packages that were not installed automatically? I see in aptitude that it will list whether they were installed automatically or not, but it is hard to find them because the are a lot more installed automatically than non-automatically.

Debian :: List Packages Installed From A Branch?

May 3, 2010

I can't remember if branch is the correct term but I am talking stable, testing or unstable.

i have looked through the dpkg and aptitude man pages but can't seem to find if there is a way to search which packages on the system are installed from a specific branch. Is there a way to do this?

Debian :: Search Installed Packages And List Available Docs

Jan 11, 2016

I have realized that in not installing suggested packages I've missed out on a ton of doc files, which would really come in handy while I'm away from internet access.

Is there a way take a list of currently installed packages and find out which of them have doc packages available? Possibly install them in a single step? I have been playing around with aptitude and apt-rdepends, but I'm not quite sure how to go about this. Somehow take a list of installed packages, run it through an apt-cache search, and end up with a list of -doc packages to install? My bash-fu isn't the greatest, and I suppose this could be a bad idea to begin with.

General :: List Installed Packages In Debian From A File?

Jun 25, 2010

I have a system that will not boot as /usr has been destroyed and I would like to get a list of installed packages before re-installing. I know that it's possible to get this using dpkg or apt, but I cannot run those.

Where in the filesystem is this information stored and what's the best way to get a list of installed apps from the files?

Debian :: Getting List Of Installed Packages From A Dead System?

May 31, 2010

I have a dead system that was running Debian Linux (lenny). I can boot into emergency mode, but nothing else. I will likely have to reinstall Debian. I've read lots of things online about how to get a list of currently installed packages. Which is fine and dandy if the system is working and I can log into it. I'm basically wanting to extract such a list from a hard drive containing an installation I can't log into normally. I can access the filesystem just fine, and nothing related to aptitude has been damaged.

Ubuntu :: Get A List Of Packages That I Installed Deliberately?

Feb 23, 2011

In MacPorts, the ports I would be looking for are the requested ports. They have a system so that when you install a port, that port is marked as requested. Also if you want to keep a port that was installed as a dependency, you can set it to be requested manually. Does the Debian system have the same functionality? It seems that there are some utilities that get that done..

Ubuntu :: Dpkg - List Manually Installed Packages?

Sep 17, 2010

I'd like to list all packages I installed since the installation. The tricky part is that I don't care for dependencies - only clean list of what I ordered to install. I went through man pages and I did not find anything relevant. Also /var/log/apt/history* doesn't say what I requested and what came as a dependency.

For gentoo-aware folks, I am looking for something like "world" file.

Is there any way that I can get a list of packages (on the command line) that have been installed manually i.e. all those that haven't been installed as dependencies? I think this must be possible as apt seems to know which dependency packages are no longer required i.e. apt-get autoremove

Ubuntu :: Update Installed Packages List Or Force Removal Of Package?

Jul 21, 2011

I was working on my flash drive install of Ubuntu, when I squashfsed my /usr. Long story short, I some how ended up with a working /usr, but with a few packages marked as installed, but not having its components installed (emacs). When I try to remove emacs (emacs23-nox), it gives me numerous errors about files (all relating to emacs) not existing (all in /usr). Thus my questions are as follows:

1) Is there a way to force the removal without it caring about missing packages?


2) Is there a way to reload which packages are installed by checking which files exist, etc?


3) Should I just nuke and re-install?

Server :: Running "yum Check-update" On A List Rather Than Installed Packages

Nov 24, 2010

I've been google'ing around recently for some good solutions for creating local yum "update" repositories without syncing entire repositories. (or adding hundreds of exclude statements in config files)

I have several boxes with a common base build (centos 5.5/x86_64), one has nagios3, another has apache, and another tomcat6 (also a couple of others) For tomcat and nagios I'm obviously using 3rd party repositories (jpackage, epel, rpmforge to name a few) Everything is installed via RPM from kickstart.

I would like to make an updates repository which contains the updates for everything that's installed (including centos base).

Updates will be downloaded on a separate box, but not sure how to get the list of packages required on that box where the packages are not actually installed. I've looked at reposync and mrepo, but appear to be syncing from what's available rather than what's required.

I was hoping that I can provide an "rpm -qa" output, compare this to a "yum list" or perhaps running "yum check-update" on a list rather than installed packages. I could then use the yum-downloadonly module to get the packages which have changed from available sources.

OpenSUSE :: Error: "cannot Read The List Of Installed Packages"

Sep 16, 2010

I had clicked the link to change system packages to the ones in the packman repo. After hitting accept everything went well until it was at least 90% done, and then it froze, mouse stopped moving. So I waited a while, and after nothing happened I rebooted my computer. Now the first time I tried to go back into the software update section it gave me an error: "cannot read the list of installed packages"

and kicked me out. After trying to go in again this time it worked, however it won't install anything anymore and just gives me the error that whatever I want to install failed, for example trying to install VLC and dependancies gives me:

Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: rpmdb: PANIC: Invalid argument rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db3 error(-30977) from dbcursor->c_put: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery how do I recover the installed packages database, or rebuild it?

Debian :: Cannot Locate List Of Essential Packages?

Oct 20, 2010

I fruitlessly tried to understand the mechanism of package clean in Debian. There are two types of packages: the one that are essential for user and dependencies of these packages. How could I found where the list of essential packages is kept in Debian? (in Gentoo it is called world-file)
dkpg -l shows me the list of all packages installed.
