Running Fedora22 Workstation.

I am buying a new computer and want to 'migrate' my Fedora installation to the new one. Copying ~/home/user is simple. But how do I ensure that all programs/ applications are installed?

Plus, all the updates that I have downloaded and installed to bring the distribution up-to-date?

You can clone your disk using dd to your new this that will hold corrent installation to your new pc. Another way is to use dnf list installed on the current pc and compare that list the same ouput of the new pc. Hope this help.

It's not quite trivial, but you can read ALL of these articles and so you'll have some knowledge on how to do that. The best option is, from far, Clonezilla.

Please, check out the following tutorials, they will guide you on how to clone your disk:

Here you can check how to clone your hard drive using another option, the dd command.

Hope it helps!
