Question Clone my application to another computer

I have installed fedora 9 as my OS.
I have installed a lot of programmes and settings on it as my own application.
I want to copy the whole thing to another computer.
The hardware of another computer may be different.

How can I do that?
Thanks in advance.

Hi uativan,

there is quite a simple solution. Things you need to do it are:
the drive with your Fedora 9 installation
second drive with enough free space to hold all the data of your installation. (du -hs / should give you the amount of space needed)
and a rescue cd or equavilant.

Put the second drive into your fedora machine.
Boot from the rescue cd
Mount all your fedora installation partitions into say /mnt/fedora_orig
Mount the other driver into /mnt/fedora_new
cp -a /mnt/fedora_orig/* /mnt/fedora_new
Get a cup of tee or drink of choice
When done switch of computer.
remove second harddrive
put into another machine and see if it boots.

As long it's the same CPU architecture you should be set

You might still need to adjust grub.conf and /etc/fstab to match the layout of your drivers and partitions.
