Re: Cloning an installation

I guess you want to use dpkg --get-selections and dpkg --set-selections

To get the same packages installed on the other do:

dpkg --get-selections < file (on the installed machine)
copy the file from thatmachine to the new one
dpkg --set-selections < file (on the new one)
