    You might want to use dselect (or aptitude, whatever).  It makes package
selection much easier.  BTW, since you're using Debian (I'm too tired to
have noticed this earlier), you'll need to copy the example config file from
the source directory to /etc/cipe/peers.

hello Dave,
I saw them, but I'm just starting with debian and I'm not that comfortable
with the apt-{get;cache} thing; I didn't know how to find what version of
cipe apt would install; after some reading I found out that it's cipe 1.5.2,
the same I just installed by hand, so I'll remove it, and go the debian
I'll keep you current on my findings; by the way, I still run 2.4.16.

thanks, dragos
