|I hope I'm not asking another stupid question, but how can someone get a package list like the one at http://damnsmalllinux.org/packages.html? This one seems to have not been updated in quite some time (still lists Scite and Ted as packages included on DSL, to name a couple).|
I've already downloaded both the dsl-dpkg and gun-utils myDSL extensions, read the other resources pointed out in this forum/thread, and checked the other DSL documentation/help screens/etc. Also tried running "apt-get update;" that came up with a progress bar, said it was downloading some stuff, then went back to the command line.
Please let me know if I'm missing/forgetting something. Thanks!
If you want to see a list of installed packages (like the one on the homepage) just use the command dpkg -l from inside a X Terminal.
If you want to find what packages are available to download you can use synaptic as cbagger suggests. Alternatively you can search for a package using apt-cache search program_name and use apt-cache show package_name to show infomation on a particular package (I prefer the command line ).
