Can someone help please?

I already did some research and found:

  1. Linux Respin completely messed up my system when trying to install dependencies (removed a lot of packages I needed) - at least I am using a VM so I could revert to a snapshot
  2. Trying Linux Live Kit I am building a tentative ISO while writing this post - will keep you updated even though I am not confident it will work as I wish

I also read about MX Linux which has a tool called MX Snapshot. Can that utility be used on Debian?

I would appreciate if anyone has further ideas and recommendations since I really want to get this thing done the proper way... I used to use SystemBack way back but now it is not being maintained anymore I guess...


  • Check the last link added to your original question for a HOWTO for SystemBack and current Ubuntu. Hope it helps. – K7AAY Jul 16 at 19:00
  • Thanks @K7AAY - will have to change the base of my distro to Ubuntu then I guess... – wpbud Jul 18 at 8:58
  • Try the steps in the answer with Debian first. – K7AAY Jul 19 at 6:55
