KDE frontend for lilo configuration

lilo-config is a KDE based frontend to the lilo boot manager configuration. It runs out of the KDE Control Center. If you want to use the menu entry to launch lilo-config, you need to install kdebase-bin since it uses the kdesu command to gain root privileges. This package is part of KDE, as a component of the KDE administration module. See the 'kde' and 'kdeadmin' packages for more information.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
