Does anyone have a simple way to get a listing of all packages installed
un Kubuntu Linux?
I typically use Adept, but don't see a way to generate reports.
Is there some command-line tool like apt? I do have that installed as
well, but don't know if it shares data with Adept.
I am looking for a simple text file so I can do a clean reinstall and
not miss anything.
I have never had good luck with upgrades and I think my system is
currently a bit hinky from trying.
I have a new disc (500GB SATA) and want to partition it so I can have
two system partitions and alternately install new versions on one for
testing without trashing the active one (kinda like the way TiVo does
When I install the new disc, I can just copy my home partition to the
new drive and life should be good.
Also, somebody mentioned dedicating most of the drive to /var, placing a
home folder there and mounting it so that it appears in the filesystem
as /home. CAn this be done during install, or is it better to do a
stock install, move home and add the mountpoint to fstab after the
system is running?
