I have two laptops. I was delighted to see the arrival of AptonCD! I created a cd loaded with the Aptitude-installed programs from one laptop. Then I did the "restore" downloading all of the programs to a folder called "/var/cache/apt/archives" I changed directory to this directory and did dpkg -i *.deb .... it seemed to work but I did get an error message at the end:
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kwlan: Conflicts: dhcdbd but 2.0-2ubuntu3 is to be installed
Conflicts: network-manager but 0.6.4-6ubuntu7 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
When I created the cd there was an option to "auto select dependencies" Does anyone know whether this is a good option to select (I did tick it). Maybe it has something to do with the dependency problem?
1) any suggestions on how to solve the dependency conflicts outlined above?
2) is this the right way to "restore" a set of programs from one laptop to another?
3) Is it a good idea to "auto select dependencies" when creating the cd .... seems correct but I am no expert here?
