Ha! And you think that's all there is to it? What about
all the libraries and sym links strung all over heck?

Wipe OS partition (6Ps)

Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance ;)

re-install OS, unpack backup-config to /tmp
and cherry pick custom .conf files

Oh yeah - that's going to be a picnic. I just
did a count in my /etc and I have 405 configuration

The most recent dozen or so matter, the rest don't. I don't run an MTA
here, but got samba, nfs, sshd, etc.

And I think you're being optimistic.

Well I took a config backup and updated to slack-current 'live', prepared
to reinstall if it fell over, it didn't fall over, renamed some .new configs
to replace old ones, checked and kept custom configs, rebooted to get all
new files into memory: pppoe, web, ftp, sshd servers all fine.

Offline time 1 or 2 minutes. Box is Internet facing router / server.

If you have separate
/home and /usr/local partitions, replacing the OS is a snap...

Although I couldn't name a specific one, I bet there are more than a
few local apps that install themselves in /usr/bin and whatever other
non-standard locations, and they don't ask the installers permission
for it.

That should be under admin control -- I expect non-distro apps to go
into /usr/local area, I don't know why so much extras are shoved into
the OS 'space'.

Again, a logbook (or text file) of changes made helps a lot.

I've been wondering lately if there's some God-send utility that would
track installs for the purpose of alleviating the pain of such

There is one called 'checkinstall', dunno if it is generic, never used
it. Takes place of the 'make install' step and records all the damage
and insults to the OS for later unwind?
