Is there any registry kind of info exist in unix/linux box for what are all the softwares are installed
Posted on 2007-11-20
Dear experts ,
!) When ever we install software in windows all the details maintained as part of the dictionary ,called as registry . For the unix operating system is there such kind of concept is there ( mean any config files or any other will have this info )
Where all we can see details of what are all installed in unix/linux box.
2 ) if suppose , we installed the any software in unix/linux box ,after that successfully taken the backup of installed directory
If installed directory is corrupted , just by restoring the above backup can the we brough up the software as before ?
- after just restoring the backup of above software, is there any alteration required in any config files . [ recently I studied article that , restoring the backup of the oracle software possible if it is corrupted . I am just wondering after installation in unx/linux box, OS will maintain any registry kind of information in any config files , so that just restoring the backup of the software , it works as before ] .
please clarify . ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â¦.. thanks to all in advance ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â¦.
