howto undo automated dependency selections in dselect

I'm new to debian, with a fresh installation, and was browsing through dselect, found kdebase and wanted to see which dependencies it had. So I selected it and viewed the dependencies, but when I quit I did a q or Q so the selections was saved, which I did'nt wan't it to be.

Now I wan't to return to dselect's previous state, which was about 3 upgrades and a few uninstalls, as from a fresh debian netinst rc1.. expert26..

Is this possible?

Also I wan't to view a guide to installing XFree+KDE (minimal).. Anybody know one?

apt-get install xserver-xfree86 xserver-common kdelibs4 kdelibs libarts1 kdebase kdm should get most of what you need any you would want to install the fonts.

[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# COLUMNS=125 dpkg -l | grep xserver
ii  xserver-common            4.3.0.dfsg.1-4            files and utilities common to all X servers
ii  xserver-xfree86           4.3.0.dfsg.1-4            the XFree86 X server
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# COLUMNS=125 dpkg -l | grep xfonts
ii  xfonts-100dpi             4.3.0.dfsg.1-4            100 dpi fonts for X
ii  xfonts-100dpi-transcoded  4.3.0.dfsg.1-4            100 dpi fonts for X (transcoded from ISO 10646-1)

Then you need to pull in the parts of KDE you want it can be a little tricky doing it the way you want sometimes you end up leaving out some stupid little package you never knew you needed. Here is what I have installed.

[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# COLUMNS=130 dpkg -l | grep kde

ii  libkdepim1                 3.2.2-2                    KDE PIM library
And make sure that you end up with kicker installed as well or you will have no way to access the menus and you will most likely want to have konqueror, ksplash and kmail. And if you do not want the whole of the KDE multimedia packages installed then skip that package and just install the apps that you want like the kmix, kscd ...
