I have installed a number of packages with much pain. (I've a slow internet connection)
Now I want to reinstall Ubuntu (I use 10.10), but I don't want to download all the packages again. I have burned a disk containing all these packages (with APTonCD, which I think don't solve dependency headache.)
Is there any easy way to override manual dependency solving? (Even though there is, I would like to know how to do it manually.)
Can I back up system configuration?
