dpkg l listing only installed packages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 20, 2009
Brand new to Ubuntu and the install process has no doubt been the easiest of all of the distributions I've tried. One question about dpkg. On my Debian systems, "dpkg -l" lists all available packages which seems to be the expected behavior in Ubuntu. However, on my system "dpkg -l" lists only those packages that are installed and configured.
$ dpkg -l|grep -v "^i"

listing the installed Packages
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 28, 2007
Is there a command which I can use to list all the packages I have on my system with their sizes? "The sizes which they occupy on my HDD".
[SOLVED] Listing recently installed packages?

How can I list what packages I have installed (as opposed to those installed as dependencies), and if possible, in chronological order of installation?
Where does dpkg keep its list of installed packages?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2012
I'm using 12.10 QQ 32-bit, but this question probably applies to all distros:
I can use dpkg -l to get a list of all installed packages. Presumably, dpkg merely reads an existing file buried somewhere in the system, then outputs that file to me (perhaps processed first).
But I wish to look at the original file, the one that is read by dpkg. What is that file name? Where is it?
apt/dpkg List of all installed packages

Is there a way to have apt or dpkg print out a list of all the installed packages? Preferably in a format that I can simply add 'apt-get install' in front of.
dpkg how to list manually installed packages?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 17, 2010
I'd like to list all packages I installed since the installation.
The tricky part is that I don't care for dependencies - only clean list of what I ordered to install. I went through man pages and I did not find anything relevant.
Also /var/log/apt/history* doesn't say what I requested and what came as a dependency.
For gentoo-aware folks, I am looking for something like "world" file.
Any way to use dpkg to rollback recently installed packages?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 30, 2010
Using Ubuntu Lucid with Gnome desktop.
I was just playing around trying to find a media player I liked and installed Bangarang via the Software Centre. This took an absolute age and now I realise why - it has basically installed the entire KDE environment and associated lib packages as well.
I have found /var/log/dpkg.log shows what has been installed and of course I can wade through that to make a list of all the packages and uninstall them all via Synaptic. But that will take a long time to do.
Is there anyway to somehow automate rolling back any package changes since a certain time?
I've checked the man for dpkg and I can't see any mention of anything like this.
dpkg vs rpm for previously installed packages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2014
I am converting some RPM packages to .deb format using alien. While testing, I am seeing some differences in behavior between dpkg and rpm when a package is installed over itself. For example, if I were to do "rpm -i foo_a-1.0.0.rpm" on a machine where foo_A-1.0.0 was already installed, rpm would write a message about the pre-existing package and quit. With dpkg, when I do "dpkg -i foo_A-1.0.0.deb" on a machine where foo_A-1.0.0 is already installed, the behavior is different. It looks like:
1) package prerm and postrm scripts are loaded. prerm is executed
2) package is unpacked, overwriting all files (including the pre and post install
and uninstall scripts)
3) previously loaded postrm is executed. This causes some vital files to be removed.
4)The newly unpacked postinst script is run. This script tries to perform operations on
some of the files that were remoed in step 3 above. This causes the install to fail
and leaves the .deb package in a brok
Ubuntu 9.10 dpkg audit: The following packages are only half configured...
- date: January 17, 2010
The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems
configuring them the first time. The configuration should be retried using
dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect:
linux-image-2.6.31-17-generic Linux kernel image for version 2.6.31 on x86/x86
I'm new to linux and while trying to setup the system to my requirements made some mistakes.
The last thing I did to try and resolve this issue was to boot under linux-image-2.6.31-16-generic (recovery mode) and purge (dpkg -P ...) the package. That worked ok and dpkg --audit stopped complaining. I then reinstalled the virtual package linux-image-2.6 which installed linux-image-2.6.31-17-generic (2.6.31-17.54) and the problem returns. How can I get dpkg or aptitude to do a clean installation of the latest kernel?
If I do as dpkg --audit suggests and run dpkg --configure, I get:
:~$ sudo dpkg --configure linux-image-2.6.31-17-generic
Listing installed packages with yum and rpm mismatch
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 8, 2015
How can I efficiently list installed and available packages on Cent OS?
I have already tried yum list installed, which is supposed to output the list of all installed while rpm -qa produces a different result in size.
Which one should I trust? Or am I omitting something?
