Migration from Debian/powerpc to Debian/i386
I'm currently using Debian on an iMac G5. Everything is alright but I
have to hand the computer over to another user and I will get a PC in
I'm not sure what would be the best path to follow to recreate my debian
environment in the new machine. I cannot repackage packages because the
architecture is different,but maybe there is an automatic tool to save
the configuration and the list of packages.
On top of that, I don't know if things like MySQL databases can be
simply copied or if I should export/import them. Is there a way to know
if a package data is platform independent? (little/big endian issues
and things like that).
