My wife has an old laptop running Mint 18.3. I want to standardise on EOS for our machines. I wondered if there was anything that can convert the packagelist of DEB based systems to Arch?
I have the DEB list like this:
dpkg --get-selections > ~/InstalledPackages.list
Which will give me results like (truncated):
xserver-xorg-video-intel install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau install xserver-xorg-video-qxl install xserver-xorg-video-radeon install xserver-xorg-video-vesa install xserver-xorg-video-vmware install xsltproc install xul-ext-lightning install xviewer install xviewer-plugins install xz-utils install yelp install yelp-xsl install youtube-dl install zenity install zenity-common install zip install zlib1g:amd64 install zlib1g:i386 install
But of course the packages are named differently for the two different *nixes. So is there any way to match the installs and save a life ?
