Recently i have gone through tasksel command usage because of a server setup.why cant we use apt-get or aptitude there ? why Ubuntu wiki page has suggested me to do with tasksel only .is there any specific reason ? where else we have to use tasksel ?
Tasksel then asks me to set a root mysql server password. I either want to set this programatically (perhaps with an environment variable) or leave this as an empty password, which I can change manually later.
The problem started in the following way. I was using tasksel from the terminal menu that it shows when I simply do sudo tasksel. I select Lamp Server from the list and started to install all packages related to it. The problem is that by mistake my friend clicked on the termina close button and then on accept, closing the terminal and the activity tasksel was doing.
What is a difference by installing Apache/PHP/MySQL using tasksel install lamp-server and apt-get ?
What is recommended way to install such set in Ubuntu ?
Will I get something more by installing it via "tasksel install lamp-server" ?
I've noticed that there are a few different options for Kubuntu 14.04 when you run the tasksel command. Does anyone know where I can find a fuller description of what the different options install please?
E.g. what's the difference between kubuntu-full and kubuntu-desktop?
