Re: Migrating system to new PC

Hi people,

I have Etch happyly installed, on its own hard disk, in a Pentium 4 with this and that hardware.

I just bought a brand new Intel Core Duo 2 based PC.

Given that I can just plug the debian HD into the new system, what's the best way to move my Etch to the new PC?

I suppose it's not as easy to just boot it up there, as most modules would mismatch.

If you have a debian stock kernel installed it should just work, by that I mean at least boot.

If you compile your own kernel for specific hardware then install a stock kernel before swapping the HDD.
