I installed 12.04 in a separate partition. Right now, I would like to install the softwares that I have installed on my 10.04 in my 12.04 too. I was hoping there would be a workaround for this using aptonCD. But I figured out 'restoring' using apt on cd only copies the .debs into the cache file and that might mess things up for me considerably.
The rough idea that I have is :
- Run an 'apt' command on 10.04 that will give me all the package names that I have currently installed on my 10.04.
- Bring those names to 12.04 and tell apt to fetch the same softwares, but the versions of them that belong to 12.04.
- Install them.
Is there anyway to do the above steps or is there a totally different way in which I can achieve this?
