Where do I find the descriptions of available packages in the zubuntu repositories?
In "most" other Zaurus distros, all one needs to do is download the "Packages" file and open it in a text editor.
There you can read the description for each of the packages in the feed. Also shown are the dependencies, and other useful information.

BTW, I did try to search for this on the Ubuntu forums, but came up with no answer.

Thank you for your reply. smile.gif
I made a bo-bo while in aptitude.
I was browsing in system/utilities and was looking for Gparted, so naturally being a windows guy, I hit "g" on the keyboard.
aptitude started uninstalling stuff, beginning with abiword.
When I realized what was happening, I hit ctrl+c and stopped it.
It uninstalled 4 things and I managed to stop at "at"
So using apt-get, I re-installed. abiword and abiword-common, alsa-base, and alsa-utils.
When doing this I got the following message about removing packages that are no longer required.
I don't know if I should do what is suggested. It shows a couple packages I installed earlier in the week. (wifi-radar and dillo)
And there are a lot of libraries that look like they are important.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  mii-diag libglib1.2ldbl netcat-traditional libpurple0
