(new to Debian) post install questions
Hello fellow Debianites,
I've recently switched from Fedora and I'm totally loving Debian Sarge. I have few general questions after installation that I hope some one can help me out with.
1- When I first installed Debian I was in my office, which uses an http/ftp proxy server. Now at home every time I launch apt or anything else from the command line that needs Internet access I have to type:
How do I reconfigure my proxy server settings?
2- This question is abit more general. I noticed sometimes my Firefox will just freeze the entire system (aka Windows style.) I haven't found any crash log anywhere that may help me find out what went wrong. Any suggestions where I should look? I've looked in most files inside /vars/log/.
3- When I first installed Debian, I installed it bare bones and kinda feeled my way into installing the rest of the system (i.e. X, xorg, xfce, apps, new kernel, etc...) The problem is that I didn't know the best repositories and I'm sure I have allot of left-over packages that I really don't need. Is there any function on apt or aptitude to remove unused packages? If not is there a way to get the system back to bare bones without having to reformat and reinstall the system?
Thanks in advance.
