Subject: [gentoo-user] Migrating gentoo to a new machine
Date: Sat, 03 Feb 2007 10:18:33
1 Throught the years I've build-up a good collection of gentoo packages that I'm
2 currently running on my notebook. Now that I need to move to a new notebook, I
3 build another gentoo system where everything were smooth and I did a emerge
4 world/systems to get everything update. Now the question is - how do get gentoo
5 to emerge the exact same number of package like my old notebook? I've attempted
6 to move /var/lib/portage/world(which contain all the packages that I need) to
7 the new notebook and start a emerge world. I got an error and ask me to "emaint
8 -c" that I follow diligently which didn't quite help. I follow up with a "emaint
9 -f" and somehow it just get rid of all the packages that I need :(
11 Apologies for the cluessless question, is there an easier way to duplicate the
12 exact package on my old system to the new one?
14 Thanks in advance.
