This is more of a curiosity question than anything, but I was wondering how hard it would be to clone an MM install with dependencies to a new machine with a different OS.
I’m trying out a few Linux distros, as I have a media server that’s currently running Windows 10. Windows is regularly updating, and the updates need more and more computing power. This obviously slows the server down for no benefit to me, so a switch seems to be in order.
I have my existing MM installations running on my main PC through virtualisation, so every time I need to reboot or shut down, my mirrors get shut down too. Again, this obviously isn’t helpful.
I’m thinking of switching to one of the Debian or Ubuntu variants (probably Xubuntu), and cloning my mirrors would be the easiest way to keep my existing setup.
Has anyone done anything like this in the past, or have any thoughts on the process, or the Linux options etc?
While help and advice would be welcome, I’ve put this thread in general discussion so that it can be used for a chat about the ideas, rather than focussing on how to do it.
Let me know what you think
