Re: Cloning an installation

Just copy the disks.

cp -ax / /mnt/

i think its ax anyhow. i should be more certain considering how many times i have done this, you will need to copy partition by partition, eg if you have /home on a different partition you will have to make a seperate partition on the second drive and mount that on /mnt after you have finished copying /

cp -ax /home /mnt

or something like that, then jsut boot from a floppy and run lilo when the drives are around the right way, it can be rather complicated at times and im to lazy to type muych more than this.

I have the following problem: I have one fully installed computer,

I would like to avoid selecting all the packages manually.

Is any automated way exists ? Something like listing all packages
from the existing system and generating an installation script for
the new one out of it ?
