I 've just install the DSL on HD,
It is a good idea to make a small linux to small machine !!!! It seems nice,
but how to complete it, since it is a debian-like, it has to provide apt-get , dpkg ??
I search for , but nowhere ? I want to complete the system with packages I ve downloaded fro example tetex, lyx , ....
thnak for help

but synaptic called apt-get and tried to install it via internet ( from ibiblio.org ...)
so we are in an empty loop!!!!
how to start!!!!
maybe first, we have to install dpkg or apt-get from source tar.gz !!!

All mydsl packages can be installed in this manner.
You might also need gnu-utils for proper use of dpkg, but i'm not sure about that.
