    Capture a application installation

    Hi all,

    Is it possible to capture a application installation?
    What I mean is to make a snapshot on the computer before installing the application, then install the application and make all the necessery configs and so on an then take another snapshot on the computer. Then compare the two snapshots and save the differences to a file that in a simple way could be installed on another computer?

    In the M$ world there is for example Wise Setup Capture and RapidInstall that could do this.

    Is there any program for Red Hat that can do this?

    There is RPM, RedHat Package Manager, a tool for installing/removing software. If you have rpm package you can easily install it and then remove. To create rpm file use checkinstall.
    Settings are usually held in a single file.
    2b|!2b, that is the question

    If substraction add to multiplication you will get a division.

    GDB has a 'break' feature. Why doesn't it have a 'fix' too?

    Yes I use RPM's but I can't capture setup configuration like licenseservers and so on with this.
