Just to test i uninstalled avast, and brasero.
I then added the following to the file "installed-software":
I then ran dpkg, and dselect (with sudo).
When it opened up the prompt for dselect I choose 3 (install and upgrade wanted packages).
The following was the output (neither brasero NOR avast installed):
It seems nvidia-glx, and virtualbox are giving problems. But I don't know what to do. I use nvidia-glx-new (I think), and NOT the OSE version of virtualbox. Whats happening?
abhiroop@Vanimo:~$ sudo dpkg --set-selections < installed-software
