have long file list; want to find word matches(package deletion purposes)
i listed all the packages on my debian system and downloaded a "kicklist.txt" from the internet. after i did the apt-get remove command on the kicklist.txt it didn't delete anything and stopped after saying 10 programs on the list weren't found.
since that didn't seem to work; i did a hpkg >> package.txt; so now im looking at a list of packages INSTALLED and a list of packages i want to DELETE and i just was wondering if i could do a simple diff or merge type command to find the matches, output to another txt and delete that list.
i think maybe the kicklist is outdated. does anyone know of a kicklist for knoppix 6 adriane?
Depending on what the kicklist looks like you could conceivably
feed it into a grep that you run against your list of installed
grep -f kicklist packagelist
