comment How to install recommended packages
I don't disagree, but I was talking to someone about the question in chat and arrived at: ~"Uptick from me. I wouldn't accept that answer if I were the OP though. I would want someone to point at where in the packaging process you can recommend a category containing packages and let it choose."

comment How to install recommended packages
I suspect it's an interpreting output problem. I don't think aspell would actually recommend ALL dictionaries. I do think it would say "I know you want at least one dictionary, so I'm going to recommend a category of package aspell-dict. I'm not going to actually recommend EVERY package in that category, but I'll try to help you choose one."

comment I'm trying to get started with LXC containers, and I'm getting a permissions problem on starting an unpriviledged container. How can I fix it?
This string of tutorials should get you started stgraber.org/2013/12/20/lxc-1-0-blog-post-series - it's where I ran in to the unpriv container problem that caused this problem.

comment How to make multiple monitors work just like in Windows?
It doesn't do that out of the box, but you could force it to run a script when the monitor is connected via udev rules. You'ld have to set it up both ways manually and let udev events trigger the scripts to change it though.

comment How do I forward SIP calls
Yes, you could use asterisk for this. Last time I checked, installing asterisk was not at all straight-forward though. For such a limited application, it would probably be much easier to use the Asterisk@Home or AsteriskNOW iso as base media.

comment OSSEC installation auto-start?
How did you install it? configure make install or the install.sh. I checked the README/INSTALL docs, and the install.sh should make it autostart, but configure make install probably won't. I'm guessing you tried to super-manually install it and failed.
