mau nambahin mas,

untuk package management sebaiknya jangan pake perintah yg low-level seperti apt-*, karena perintah2 ini tidak menyimpan status-record package yg di-install

saya sarankan pake high-level program kayak Synaptic atau aptitude, saya sendiri sudah puas dengan aptitude yang text-based, btw saya pake debian, silahkan dicoba sendiri di ubuntu :-)
