On my home machine ubuntu live since version 8.04. Every six months she successfully of updates with pamsu command distr-upgrade.
Want to install the system from scratch, to clean it from possible bugs and packages left over from older versions of OSes. Of course, no desire to netravati all over again and remember which packages and from what repository I was ostanavlivali.
The hamster I have on the hotel tab so the first problem is solved relatively easily (just don't format it).
But what about the list of packages and repositories? I know that you can save a list of installed packages to a file and then install all packages from that file. But, first, what to do with the packages that will be obsolete in the new Ubuntu (why would I want to put out, if they are no longer needed?), and, secondly, what if any packages are missing?
Another possible "hitch" is that I have a hamster(and another section with multimedia) created on top of LVM. Can the latest ubuntu correctly to define them or need to be dancing with a tambourine? But, basically, I'm really interested in how to install only the desired packages? With LVM, I think, will understand somehow.
