I also have many additional packages installed.My question is:How do I preserve the list of installed additional software so that I may readily reinstall all of it after each upgrade?

Ubuntu Installation :: Way To Get List Of SoftwareI Installed

May 31, 2011

I'm considering rebuilding my system. Is there any way to get the list of software that I added? I know I can see the list of installed software in Ubuntu Software Center, but that list includes items that were included. Rather than going through that long list to see what was included and what I added, is there a way to see only the items I added?

Ubuntu Installation :: List Explicitly Installed Packages?

Feb 19, 2010

I wounder how I should do to find out what packages I have explicitly installed on the system, NOT including the dependencies. The purpose is to get a figure of what packages I need to install when I reinstall my system.In Gentoo one can look at the world-file (/var/lib/portage/world) which is a list of my explicitly installed packages, not including system packages (located in /var/lib/portage/system)

Installation :: Get A List Of Installed Packages From Non-booting Ubuntu?

I'm reinstalling an ubuntu machine that does not boot anymore. I have a complete backup of all the files that were on the harddrive.

I would like to make a list of all the programs that were installed, so I can re-install them on the fresh install.

I've found the following procedure, but this method requires that the machine still boots. (and my machine does not boot anymore) code...

Is it possible to get a list of installed packages from the backup of an ubuntu machine?

Mar 22, 2009

I would like to get the output from 'yum list installed' from a standard CentOS 5.1 32bit installation on a Intel desktop PC. I would like to do a diff with my 'yum list installed' to figure out exactly what my company customized. I know the docs here have the list of added, deleted and updated packages going from 5.0 to 5.1, but is there a complete 'yum list installed' list somewhere?

Fedora :: Repository List And List Of Installed Applications?

Feb 17, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Pimlico Tasks List Lost During Upgrade To 11.04

Aug 21, 2011

I was using Pimlico Tasks manager with Ubuntu 10.10 [URL]. Yesterday I did an Ubuntu upgrade and all seemed to go OK, but today when I opened Tasks... my list was all empty! All tasks gathered for many months all lost! How could this happened? Isn't Ubuntu supposed to mantain all configs and personal data? And more important - is there any way I can recover my task list?

Ubuntu Installation :: Reformat And Reinstall While Preserving /home?

Mar 7, 2010

I installed Mythbuntu, got some Wine apps up and running, then discovered my Nvidia DualTV MCE won't work with Myth. So I'd like to try a different variant, either the plain vanilla Ubuntu or UbuntuStudio.Can I just use Mythbuntu to create a new partition, move /home/* to it, and then reformat and install over the original Mythbuntu partition? When I reinstall the new version, how do I tell the installation process to use /home on the other partition (without overwriting it) instead of creating a new one from scratch?

Ubuntu Installation :: Preserving Windows Drives On Switch?

Mar 15, 2011

I am switching to Ubuntu soon for security purposes. I have 3 hard drives, one with my OS, one with nothing, and one with all my junk. I was wondering if there is anyway that I can only reformat and install Ubuntu onto the drive with windows, reformat the empty drive, and then transfer files from my junk drive onto the empty drive, and then format the junk drive and move all of the files back onto the junk drive? Or is the junk drive accessible from Ubuntu and not worth trying to switch formats on?

Debian Installation :: Preserving Partitions Switching From LMDE?

Sep 27, 2014

I'm going to move from Linux Mint (Debian Edition) to Debian on my Laptop (3 user). The current setup is LMDE-Cinnamon, with 4 partitions; /, swap, home and data. All the important data lives in data while home is used for preferences only.

Am I right in thinking that preserving the data partition is as simple as not formatting it during the installation?

And what about home? Obviously this now contains a lot of irrelevant stuff (Cinnamon settings for example) and many programs will be in different versions...
- Just keep it (after all the irrelevant stuff should not do anything bad?)? And if so how do I tell the installer to do this?
- Format and restore the relevant preferences manually from the backup?
- Format and have everybody set up their preferences as needed?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Upgrade - What Packages Are Installed By Default

May 25, 2010

Since I had problems with Openoffice since the upgrade to 9.10, I've tried to uninstall all openoffice. I've searched for 'openoffice' in synaptic and uninstalled all thet I've found. It has uninstalled many other things, thunderbird, firefox and god only knows what other. Now, there is a way to know what are the packages installed by default? Or, to install all the dafault packages? Or, there is a log of what I've uninstalled?

Ubuntu Installation :: Not All Updates Installed - Run Partial Upgrade

Sep 29, 2010

I am using the latest Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid lynx. Sometimes ago while I am updating my operating system to linux-image-2.6.32-25-generic (2.6.32-25.44) with update manager, after downloading all the files it was running the installation. During installation suddenly my pc turned off, may be for some power issue. Then while I again start my pc and tried to restart the update process the update manager show me a message. "Not all updates can be install. Run a partial upgrade, to install as many as updates as possible."

This can be caused by:
* A previous upgrade which didn't complete.
* Problem with some of the installed software.
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu.
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu.

Then I tried to open the synaptic package manager. But it didn't open either and show another message which suggest to run the command in the terminal: "sudo dpkg --configure -a". And unluckily it wasn't work. and show the messgae:
"dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0103' near line 0: newline in field name `#padding'".

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Packages That Are Newer Than Those In Upgrade?

Nov 13, 2010

After upgrading from one version of Ubuntu to another, what happens to packages that have been installed prior to the upgrade that have higher version numbers (are newer) than the ones that are supposed to be installed via the Ubuntu upgrade?Specifically, I'm referring to compiling the latest version of FreeType to try to alleviate some dependency issues related to compiling Wine (I need a custom Wine patch), and I was wondering what would happen if I had a newer version of FreeType installed if I then later upgraded from Lucid to Maverick, and if Maverick used an older version of FreeType by default than the one already installed on my system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Natty Fails - Kubuntu - Xubuntu Installed

Apr 29, 2011

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

I started an upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 to 10.04 and it stopped with the message: Ubuntu desktop is listed to be removed but is on the removal blacklist. Then it restored back to 8.04. I don't know how to resolve this - it would be alright to remove the old Ubuntu desktop.
