Is it possible to replicate my wife's Mint system to my laptop?

Post by lysarz » Fri Feb 02, 2018 4:40 pm

I'm in the process of migrating from PCLOS to Mint MATE 18.3. I want to replicate my wife's system onto my laptop and onto our file server. In PCLOS I could use

Code: Select all

mylivecd
to create an installable iso to transfer the os, apps, and configuration. Is there anything similar for Mint, or I do I have to install from the official iso, change the kernel, add and remove apps, and remember all the configurations for each computer in my home network?

You should be able to do it with clonezella, provided that the destination disk is the same size or greater than the source disk.

I don't know of one that does what 'mylivecd' does, but many say Clonezilla does a great job of making different types of images. I've never used it, so I wouldn't be of much help with Clonezilla.

try this, but your wife's laptop do not have propetaries driver installad, for example for video card, that could create problems in the installation, but must use open drivers

I also use mylivecd on PCLinuxOS for my backup or remaster to redistribute
