copy your debian installed packages to a new machine

June 17, 2017

Run this to retrieve a list of installed packages:

dpkg -l | grep ^ii | awk ‘{print $2}’ > installed_packages

Then install on new system with:

apt-get install $(cat installed_packages)

You should probably look at installed_packages and remove any obvious
errors.
