I am upgrading my notebook. The old one runs etch like a charm. I want
to run etch in the new notebook too, and to have installed in it exactly
the same packages than in the old one. So,
1) does exist a file with the information of all the packages installed
in the old system?
2) is it possible to use this information in the fresh installation on
the new system?
Hi Michael, thank you very much for the help.
it's easy. From the manpage of "dpkg"
To make a local copy of the package selection states:
dpkg --get-selections >myselections
You might transfer this file to another computer, and install it there with:
dpkg --set-selections <myselections
and then, in order to install the packages, should I do "aptitude update"?
