Posts Tagged ‘reinstall’



October 3, 2007

So I previously wrote about some issues I was having with my install of Gutsy and X. Today, I decided to just give up on the whole idea and reinstall Feisty. This decision was made easy when my X froze again while I was talking to a friend who is stationed in Iraq.

So, what is the best way to reinstall? I like having all my personal settings but don’t mind setting those back up. How would I transfer my GPG key over? What about my ssh key? I know there is a way to transfer my installed packages over to a text file and have apt install them so I don’t worry about that too much. dpkg -L > installed.txt (iirc). In short, I’d just like to know the best way to reinstall, maybe if that goes smoothly I’ll try Gutsy again.
