Just out of curiosity, have you ever tried this approach? I've been
using the get-selections/set-selections options to move Debian and
Ubuntu installs around for years and NEVER had a problem that wasn't a
result of a borked package (in other words, the package maintainer
screwed up). In the cases of failures I've experienced, they would've
occurred whether I used command line tools or a GUI - it was the package
that was screwed.
Rule of life in a lot of ways - don't knock it, until you've tried it :)
The debain package system is the closest thing I've ever seen (both
open and closed source) to a bullet-proof package manager. If the
packages are built properly (and often if not), it just doesn't screw
up....ever. However, if I had a dollar for every
Solaris/AIX/HP-UX/True64/RPM/Windows package I've installed that blew up
in my face, well, I could've retired a while ago!
Just for kicks and giggles, give the get/set-selections trick a go; I'm
sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.
