[aptitude] How to get a list of all installed packages?
I use aptitude for package management. Having already browsed through the forum, google, and aptitude manual, I haven't found a way to list all packages that are installed in the system on purpose (and not been dragged in automatically). I know aptitude maintains a "markauto" list but haven't been able to found out where.
I would use such a list to eg. create a mirror system in terms of intalled packages should the current one fails.
Of couse I could use dpkg --list to see all installed packages, but then I wouldn't remember what was installed automatically and what on purpose.
Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.
