Just take a list of packages that aptitude knows are installed manually:

aptitude search '~i!~M'

You'd then want to tidy up this list so that it is just a list of package
names which could be passed to aptitude. Then edit the list into a script
that runs

aptitude install <followed by the list of packages>

Remember to escape the newlines with

I forget what the maximum command-line length is; it may be an issue
depending on how many packages you manually installed.

You could make the package list with one package per line and use xargs to
pipe it through aptitude (may take longer).

Or you can just use the aptitude user interface on the new box and manually
mark the packages off the list. For a one-off, this may be the fastest way.

It all depends on how automated you want the process to be.

Doug.

You have to write to debian-user-request@lists.debian.org NOT
debian-user.

Thanks,

Have a look at the URL in the footer of the message
<http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos> You might have
better luck there.
