SmeckerI'm lazy. This seems like a good idea ;-)
zu22anyone know command (shell) that will list the package size of all my installed packages and make a nice sorted list with biggest package and it's size at the top of the list? i want some sh solution not running aptitude etc and manually looking at each paclkage to find out, i have too many packages installed for that to be practical. my goal in this is to decide which packages i dont really need which are the biggest ones i'm not really using and remove em
Smeckerdpkg?
zu22: dpkg -l
WyzardSmecker: Do you realize that apps which use freetype (basically anything capable of using anti-aliased fonts) won't see your xfstt?
zu22dpkg -l lists all paclkages installed
dpkgii lists all paclkages installed 3.2-13.2 ultra s3kr1t #debian package
zu22it does not give the install size
SmeckerWyzard: do it HAS to be local, is that what you're saying?
zu22i need to know the space footprint
Smeckerzu22: well, yeah, sure, expect me to read your question ;-)
zu22heh
WyzardSmecker: freetype loads fonts on the client side rather than the server side, so yes, it has to be local
SmeckerWyzard: Hm. Okay, thanks.
zu22i tried searching for such a package to do this but it seems no one has done it, would really be nifty
WyzardSmecker: or at least, in the local VFS namespace... it can be a remote NFS mount or something, but the fonts have to appear as files on the host where the app is running
zu22120MB x-window-system-core
SmeckerRight
zu2290MB gnome-core
etc....
a nice list
SmeckerThanks Wyzard, I follow
I'm tired but I follow :-)
zu22:)
was hoping one of the rewly shell hackes here had some solution involving sed/uniq/etc. :)
Smeckerzu22: well, package size is in there *somewhere*
zu22Smecker; yeah
Smeckers
thanks guys!
GuerinHarzilein: yeah, unless aptitude's autho-list does what you want (it doesn't sound like it)
znhenouf, I downloaded the debs manualy from packages.debian.com and that worked fine :)
enoufcreature: /msg dpkg make-kpkg
and see the kp mantra
actionznh does a happy dance
znhdoes a happy dance
enoufand generally yes .. you pass the --initrd option
znh: oh .. maybe you didn;t use apt-get source linux-headers-XXX ??
creatureenouf: Is the bit about the patches accurate, still?
enoufcreature: in the newbiedoc?
creatureenouf: Yeah.
enoufcreature: dunno .. i'll look though .. which kernel?
