6.2.2 Installing tasks

You can install sets of packages typically required in order to put a Debian system to a certain use. These sets of packages are called "tasks".

The simplest way to install tasks at the time of initial installation is to use tasksel. Note that you must run

     dselect update

before using it.

aptitude can also install tasks and is the tool recommended for this purpose. It enables you to deselect individual packages within tasks before proceeding to the installation step.
