Selecting and installing packages.
 
Hi everyone -

I have recently installed a fresh copy of Debian onto my PC via net install.
Due to my low-grade ISP, during the net-install my internet connection timed out numerous times, causing some packages to not install properly.
Now I was aware of this happening, but I thought I'd be able to get into Gnome to fix the broken packages via synaptic later, but it turns out I can't.
Xwindows won't even start properly (startx)

My question is how do I get back to the graphical installer section where it has "select and install packages". I'm sure it is an easy command but I'm not sure what it is.

Right now I am stuck at the command prompt.


Thanks Everyone.

It's sorted.
 
NM everyone.

I had to reinstall Gnome which was odd but hey it's working now.
Ta.

Good its working now

I assume what you were looking for were either

aptitude
or
dselect

even

tasksel for simpler choosing.
