You can if you are using Debian Linux use dpkg command to list installed software:

 * dpkg --get-selections
And store the list installed software to a file called /backup/installed-software.log

$ dpkg --get-selections > /backup/installed-software.log

You can also find package information in (you can use DebPkg:mc to browse these):

 * /var/lib/apt/lists/*
 * /var/lib/dpkg/available

After re-installing base system you can immediately re-install all software.

All you have to do is type following two commands:

 * dpkg --set-selections < /backup/installed-software.log
Now your list is imported use dselect, ["Synaptic"] or other PackageManagementtools to install the package :

 * dselect
Select ‘i‘ for install the software

You can also use “apt-get dselect-upgrade” instead of dselect

All this with a single command:

apt-get install {{{cat installed-software.log}}}
