I have recently installed Antergos and my main concern now is how can I perform a backup of it?
This being a rolling release, I don’t see much sense in making a backup of the / partition, is there? I mean, how long before such a backup becomes “stale” and it is hard to upgrade?
Other than making a full partition backup, I’d like to create & maintain a system to document every package installation requested manually. A naive way to achieve this is to extract it from the bash history of all commands including pacman inside them. A better way, I think, would be to create an alias for pacman that audits everything to a logfile. How could this work for GUI based package managers (especially Octopi)?
A penny for your thoughts…
