Since Fedora isn't a rolling release distro like I'm used to, I was wondering if there was a way to save a list of installed packages to make the next upgrade easier. I'm eagerly waiting for FC15, but still on FC14, and I would like to know if there's a way to export a file that yum can reference to reinstall what program titles I already have installed.
I understand there is a file that stores the repositories' information, but I can't find it!Is there a way I can create a list of what applications have been installed?The idea is that if I am running a backup, finding a way to save the repository list and applications installed so if I am upgrading, or fixing a borked system by re-installing Fedora, I could copy the repo list back, and run the applications list like ode:yum install <cat apps.txt?> and get all of the applications I've installed via Yum without having to remember them all?Is there anything else, outside of /home, I should look at backing up? SELinux settings?

I've been using Fedora 11 x86_64 for over a year and am about to upgrade to Fedora 13 using a genuine Fedora installation CD that I got last summer at OSCON. I've made a full system backup, but before I take the plunge I want to get a list of all installed applications. I have tons of special applications installed, many of which took tweaks to get running. Just in case something breaks so badly that I have to reinstall I want to be sure I can put everything back, even if it takes me several days work.I know I have read about utilities that will generate a list of installed apps, but I can't find any.
I'm the DBA for a number of Oracle RAC databases running on RHEL 4 and our SA has moved on, leaving me with some tasks to do before we get the next SA. One task is to get a list of all applications installed on our linux servers. I know I can get a list of all rpms via "rpm -qa | less" but that spits out every rpm, which is not what I want.How can I get a list of all applications installed? For example "oracle database version 10.2.0.4", yada yada.
I'm having problems with Kstars and would like to know the proper place to post questions or if there is a forum just for the Kstars program. I can't find much info on the net. If I remember right it worked in Ubuntu 8 but I've upgraded to the latest and some options in Kstars are not working now. In a nutshell, some of the problems are:
1: Help not working. I get....Could not Launch the KDE help center: Could not find service 'khelpcenter' 2: In telescope wizard, there is no list of telescopes. 3: I cant save my telescope information under properties.
As I'm just learning this stuff, it could be a bug but not sure, so please point me in the right direction for help. I'm running dual boot on a HP laptop. Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have reformatted the drive and installed everything new for a clean slate.
I installed Ubuntu in a usb flash drive using Creating a bootable Ubuntu USB flash drive But when I install some program and I restart Ubuntu, it doesnot save changes I made. Is there some way to save changes I have made?

Now, once yum installs this rpm, how can i copy all these downloaded rpm (and dependencies rpm)? So that i can use these downloaded rpms if i want to install them as a fresh or to copy and install on another computer.
I changed a few files in a couple of folders that are installed from a synaptic package. How can I save the changes as an installation package or save the changes to the package and save the package as a file?
Basically i need to test multiple printers at the same time so i will have some usb printers and parallel printers all connected at the same time and test print them by simply running the shell script.
How do you list only installed packages that were not installed automatically? I see in aptitude that it will list whether they were installed automatically or not, but it is hard to find them because the are a lot more installed automatically than non-automatically.
im very slowly migrating across from Windows to OpenSuse. However i have a few quarms about the system and how it works.
1. Add / Remove programs.Is there a way to see a list of software that you have installed and is it quite easy to "un-install" it? I have installed Compiz and then when i went to remove it i could see 10ish items called Compiz. I was confused about how to uninstall it all from my system successfully without getting rid of something i need.
2. Software packages.I have tried to install packages from the OpenSuse site and I'm not sure what has happened to it. I have installed Virtual box from here and nothing has happened. I cannot search or even see Virtualbox anywhere. What im wanting to do is run OpenSuse as my Primary OS and then run Windows 7 on VB so i can continue to work as normal under it.
3. OpenSuse in a Microsoft domain.Is this possible? At work we use a Microsoft domain but is there a way i can install the Admin tools for OpenSuse so i can continue to work as normal by for example using Active Directory etc etc.
4. Device Manager?In Windows you have the "Device manager" a very handy tool that tells you what is on your computer, what drivers are missing and need installing etc. I can't see anything like this in Suse. Im not sure if all my hardware is installed once i am in Suse like Graphics cards, sound card, network card, card reader, and anything else that is on my PC etc.
5. Partitioning. Can someone give me a good description on how OpenSuse partitions your hard drive. I have seen it gives you a "swap?" drive etc but unsure as to what this is.
In the answer there was some program which would create a file listing all installed apps and store it in /home. On updating the OS or re-installing, the file would be used to re-install all apps listed.
Finally, I found time to start moving from 8.10 to 10.10. I now start preparing the moving (backup data etc). I have installed quite a lot of software via the package manager, many of them I do not remember. Is there a possibility to create a list of installed software in Ubuntu 8.10 ?
In MacPorts, the ports I would be looking for are the requested ports. They have a system so that when you install a port, that port is marked as requested. Also if you want to keep a port that was installed as a dependency, you can set it to be requested manually. Does the Debian system have the same functionality? It seems that there are some utilities that get that done..
