http://forums.opensuse.org – In debian based systems once my system was set I'd do something like this to create a list of applications and be able to wipe-install base then reinstall my favorite apps and servers with one command. Is there a way to do this with zypper? dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > installed-packages Then, after reinstalling Kubuntu, you can use this list to reinstall those packages: Code: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade dpkg --set-selections < installed-packages sudo dselect 1) Reinstall base system 2) Copy necessary files from backup - entire network directory copied (Distributions)
