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
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.
