    Update history for 8.04?

    Where is it in my machine? I need to start un-installing updates to solve page loading problems...

    Thanks!

    ed.:
    I found this (attached). Do I just mark each one for un-installation in synaptic, until I find the problem?

    Thanks again...

    If you wanna' help, great. But explain as you go. Otherwise, you're just giving away fish, and not the important stuff - pole, bait, net, etc...

    Still a beginnerd, but not absolute...

    You can view installed, upgraded and removed package history in synaptic under file>history

    Thanks that solved half of my issues without my having to ask

    But is there a way to make the history available in a spreadsheet or similar so one can compare several machines?

    You could try
    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections> history.txt
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --set-selections< history.txt
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade
    *change history to what ever you want to call it.
    You can then view the history in a text file.
    Another one you could try is
    Code:
    sudo cat /var/log/apt/term.log > history.txt

    Thanks I had previously read about that trick, and it didnt make the light bulb in my light up.

    Is there a way to get versions of all of those packages, that actually is what I am after. Making sure several machines are equally updated.

    My appologies for only half asking my question DOOhhhh!
