How to achieve similar configuration across different archs?
After working for few months with debian on my home desktop I feel
ready to move my work desktop and laptop to debian, too. (From RH
based installation, in case you ask... ;-)
My home desktop: 64 bit dual core CPU but runs i686 kernel.
Laptop: 32 bit CPU.
Work dekstop: 64 bit quad core CPU, 3GB DDR3 mem.
I want the 3 machines to 'look' the same as much as possible.
I am aware that many setting I will have to admin manually and
separately on each machine.
However, I'd like to minimize the work in 'sharing' my setting.
1. To achieve similar package selection I am going to use
Are there any pitfalls in doing so?
(Incidently, is there a way to do this using aptitude?)
2. Are there other configuration setting that I could
'share' in an automated way?
3. I was going to install an amd64 kernel on the work desktop.
Any pitfalls there?
Thanks in advance for your help,
