Reinstalling OS... - Page 3

post #21 of 25
lol if it takes you so long to do a re install because of a huge amount of packages just script it... you write one script in five minutes with all the packages you install on every new system, and now you have a text file you can keep on a flash drive, run as root after the install or something and bam gets all the packages you need while you go afk and do dirty things to a lady for a previously agreed upon amount of money
Kinda meh now...

How is that stupid? I don't want some stupid automated package manager overwriting my configuration files. Worst case scenario, I start the updated application, realize somewhere my syntax is wrong because of the update and I adapt my configuration.

This isn't Ubuntu; I don't want the default configuration guessing what I want. I want to use my configuration.

Sure, I can generate a kickstart file from my installed system. That's easy enough. But the real "cruft" on my system that might need cleaning out is all in my home directory. RPM is very good at keeping the system stuff clean.

wouldnt you spend more time cleaning than actually just doing a reinstallation with a script that you can run?
