http://askubuntu.com – I have a laptop whose HDD is dying and has become read only. I can't boot the system into Ubuntu but I can read the Ubuntu partition using a live disk. Is there any way that I can get a list of installed applications (on the Ubuntu partition) so that I can easily install them on a new hard drive? (HowTos)
