I need to list all packages on the system, in the chronological order (or reverse order) in which they were installed. With RPM, you can do this with "rpm -qa --last".

Looking at the dpkg and dpkg-query man pages, I can't seem to find an equivalent, but perhaps I missed something?

ls -tl /var/lib/dpkg/info/ | less
