I have a nicely configured Ubuntu 9.10 machine, with crossover linux (from Codeweavers) installed. I have the Nvidia drivers installed. Everything is just as I want it.
Now I want to move to a new machine with different hardware: different sized hard drive, different size RAM, different video card, etc. I tried the technique suggested on Ubuntu forums, "Howto: Backup and restore your system!". The results:
- New system complains about swap not being found
- New system complains about not finding Nvidia hardware, and I can't open the System->Administration->Hardware Drivers application (i.e.,
/usr/bin/jockey-gtk) to fix the problem.
- As result of nvidia, X-Windows is throwing errors, and the on screen process for fixing X-Windows isn't working.
How do I restore a backup of my old system, including my Crossover Linux installation, to a new machine with different hardware installed?
