Posted by Jeena on June 06 2006,20:27Hi there,
How do I remove packages from DSL which I don't need? When I try apt-get remove packagename after dpkg-restore and apt-get update it says the package is not installed. If I do install a package and then try to remove it, it works well.
I'm trying to do a internet box with a Firefox in fullscreen which opens when I'm booting the box. I do only have something about 250 MB (a flash card or something, no hd) for the kernel, X, a window manager, a dhcp client and the Firefox and all drivers.

You would have to manually delete what you don't want and deleting the wrong thing can render it useless. I am assuming you are talking about a debian installed version of DSL(aka:hdinstall).
