Question Cataloging and output to *.txt file, Installed pkg's for duplication?


Code:
Before I get in to what I'm asking. 
Just a quick note to the Mod. 
Sorry if this is in the wrong locatation. 
If so can you please move to the correct.
Ok. Now to what I'm asking about.

I have been testing different Distros via qemu before burning the .iso.

I am wanting to know, is there an easy to output what was installed, that seems to be a working combo, so that I can use it to refernce while doing the real install?

Please point out anything I should have included but didn't, if needed. I've been up for a week sold without any sleep prior to this post.

Hi there,

If I understand correctly, you're looking for a list of the packages you installed?

How you do this depends on the distro you are running. For RPM-based distros like Redhat or openSuSE, you can run "rpm -qa". For Debian-based distros like Ubuntu you can run "dpkg --get-selections".

Which distro do you want to use for your real install?

Regards,

Clifford

I'm still undecided for sure at this point but the ones I'm in debate between are Arch, Mandriva, Gentoo (if I can get it to compile. I've tried 150+ times ending with a fail. Fails have ranged from failure to find xxxxx file to CFlags to Kernal panic, even following all docs avaible.)

I currently have Linux Mint 12 installed but due to probs with my hardware vs. needs , it's just not working out.

The PC I'm going to install to is
Code:
Architecture:          i686
CPU op-mode(s):        32-bit, 64-bit
Byte Order:            Little Endian
CPU(s):                1
On-line CPU(s) list:   0
Thread(s) per core:    1
Core(s) per socket:    1
CPU socket(s):         1
Vendor ID:             AuthenticAMD
CPU family:            15
Model:                 12
Stepping:              0
CPU MHz:               1994.066
BogoMIPS:              3988.13
L1d cache:             64K
L1i cache:             64K
L2 cache:              512K

I have to install 32-bit due to lack of ram required for 64-bit.
{A quick note about my graphics....I did some research and found that my PCI graphics card has an addressing (hardware) conflict, but I don't have another and at least for now, am stuck using my TV via S-Video as a Monitor. This is only tmp till I can replace the Monitor that recently died on me.}

I also have a 2nd PC that has simular specs but 32-bit, that I'm going to be using as a home file/app server on my linux/windows mix network minus Keyboard, mouse, and monitor, doing all via ssh.
