I want to get my back-up script into shape.
I would like to backup my package apt configuration - that is, I would
like to backup the files/databases where apt-get stores the info on
which packages are installed.
Obviously I would like to be able to use this backup after a hard-drive
failure, in order to restore exactly the same packages. Is this possible?
I checked out a debian-specific backup script mentioned in the archives,
but couldn't see whether it was doing this.
On a related note, what launches the famd daemon? I came back to my pc
after an afternoon out and found that famd had been burning up the CPU
for the past few hours.
