Configuration Files for LMDE [Solved]

Postby willie42 on Sun Jan 02, 2011 7:55 pm

I have a question. Are the configuration files like the hidden files in the home folder are they the same in the 32 bit as well as the 64 bit version. I am running 32 bit now and need to replace a failing hard drive and was wondering if I could keep my home settings and just install the 64 bit root drive. May be a dum question but dont want to waste time either.

yes, most of the files, if not all, will work just the same whether it's 32bit or 64bit.
