Copy the same package list between PC

To copy the exact same package list [1] under Debian, it is pretty simple:

On the source machine, do:
# dpkg --get-selections > pkglist.dpkg

Copy the file pkglist.dpkg on the distination machine, for example with scp or a diskette.

Then, on the destination machine, do:
# dpkg --set-selections < pkglist.dpkg
# dselect install

That's all!


[1] well, in fact, add those not already installed
