  • Linux question

    Question for all , suppose my laptop dies I'm running a ubuntu variant.
    I get a new laptop different hardware, how hard or difficult is it to move the drive to another computer. On Windows I'd do a clean install then copy my profile from the old hard drive to the next and reinstall the software I had.

    Thanks,

    It can be just plug and play, or it may not work.
    Linux has no registration, like windoz, so that is more simple.
    If all of the drivers work then it should be just plug in the drive.
    I would recommend trying your version live with a USB on the new computer, before the switch.
    The new 20.04 LTS, works great, and will be supported for 5 years, give it a try.

      So having to recompile the kernal would be what you have to do if it doesn't work correct?

        Since the drivers are part of the kernel, You get whatever kernel version is in that Distro issue.
        20.04LTS has kernel 5.4xxx in it.
        As long as the video display works, and your network works, you can usually install the driver for whatever doesn't work.
        That is why I always run the version live from USB stick, first to check out the display adapter, wifi, sound, etc. before I load it.
