  5. i found a program called aptoncd but unfortunality it's for ubuntu distro only or debian based distro's this tool makes you able to copy all or some of your installed pkg's which you downloaded frome the repositaries so if you reinstalled your distro again you dont need to install it again from the repositories all what you h'v to do is backing up the pkg's from the cd or image file which you created with this tool so, is there is any equale program like this but for mdv ? ..ihope
  6. thank you so much the problem is solved
