How to backup/restore list of installed packages?

Post by myguidingstar » Sat Aug 01, 2015 18:13

Hi all,
I looked at equo but couldn't find a way to do so. Basically I want something similar to this in a Debian system:

Code: Select all

#backup
dpkg --get-selections >output-file  
#restore
sudo dpkg --set-selections <output-file 
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade
