''a.k.a. I like my Linux how I like my women... <s>easy to set up</s>flexible.''
 +
 
 +
This is a script to backup and/or transfer a working Funtoo installation onto a fresh install (on the same or a different host).
 +
 
 +
It won't speed up an install and it doesn't make it easier, but with it you can do a single reboot
 +
and have a complete working system without tedious config file editing.
 +
 
 +

==Usage==
 +
 
 +
Fill in the 6 variables at the top of the script. You'll constantly be adding more files as the original system gets more customised.
 +
 
 +
When you're ready (or as a cron job), run the script and save the resulting tarball somewhere.
 +
 
 +
Boot your install environment. Partition, format and unpack (or work up to) a stage3. Grab a portage tree.
 +
 
 +
Unpack the main tarball (you probably don't want to unpack the other tarballs yet):
 +
 
 +
{{Root|<nowiki># tar xvJf --exclude "*.tar" funtoo-overlay.tar.xz -C /mnt/gentoo
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 
 +
Take a peek at the list of files in $HOST_FILES and edit them to the host's specification.
 +
 
 +
{{Info|You cannot expect every host to have the exact geometry or architecture as the original host. If, by some miracle, the two are exactly alike, go ahead and unpack the host tarball (probably into <tt>/tmp</tt>).}}
 +
 
 +
{{Info|The host tarball uses the prefix <tt>host/</tt> instead of the regular <tt>etc/</tt>. This is for your protection (and a limitation of the script... but mostly protection).}}
 +
 
 +
Chroot in and run (I suggest in a screen, nohup or another VT):
 +
{{Root|<nowiki># env-update; source /etc/profile
 +
# emerge -uDN world</nowiki>}}
 +
 
 +
Wait (or finish configuration). Remember to make a kernel and <tt># boot-update</tt> (and installing the bootloader to MBR if necessary).
 +
 
 +
Add an identical user (it's not in the script, but you might want to save the output of <tt>$ groups</tt>) and unpack <tt>home-overlay.tar</tt>. If you have anything in <tt>usrlocal-overlay.tar</tt> you can unpack that too.
 +
 
 +
{{Info|If you're installing on a different architecture, the contents of <tt>/usr/local</tt> may be useless for your CPU.
 +
If you're lucky, it may be all architecture-independent/interpreted scripts, or nothing at all.}}
 +
 
 +
If all goes well, reboot (and remove the install environment)!
