    tasksel, purge, and remove

    Hi,

    When using tasksel to remove a LAMP server, samba server, or anything else is using tasksel the same as using "purge," "remove" or both?

    Thanks.

    Don't use tasksel to remove packages, bad things can happen as it may remove many packages that it shouldn't, which can leave the machine in an inconsistent state. To remove something that you installed with tasksel, you need to mention the packages specifically.
    See this: Bug #574287

    Thank you for the information. Could someone still clarify however if tasksel theoretically does a remove, purge, or both?
