I am installing ndiswrapper to get my Netgear WG311T wireless card working, and part of the instructions said to run the following command:
#aptitude install wireless-tools
I ran that command, and aptitude wanted to remove over 200 packages that it said are not used. Some of the packages are abiword-common, esound, evolution, gnome-system-tools, nautilus-cd-burner, sudo, synamptic, and many others including over 100 libraries. My question is can I let aptitude remove these packages, or will I loose programs and functionality? I am still too new to linux to know what these files do. I went ahead and installed wireless-tools with apt to keep from messing things up.
