I have a 9.10 machine used for development by one of my colleagues. A new team member has joined us, and he wants to have the same development environment on his 10.04 machine as the one used on the 9.10 one.
I've done some searching and tried using:
aptitude search '~i!~E' | grep -v "i A" | cut -d " " -f 4
To get a list of packages I want installed on the 9.10 machine.
The problem is that trying to install the humongous list of packages on the 10.04 machine causes severe dependency problems, and
aptitude nearly refuses to install them.
Is there a way to get only the distribution-independent packages from the 9.10 machine, i.e. only the packages that will be installed on the 10.04 without problems?
