I got a Mint 11 LXDE installation. The HDD have 3 partitions, one swap and 2 ext4 mounted on / (8gb) and /home (30gb). I'm trying to upgrade to Mint 12 LXDE, and thought to preserve the /home partition. After booting from the LiveCD, I select install and chose the install type to "Something Else". On the partition editor, I mark the 8gb partition as ext4 partition set to mount to /, and mark it to be formatted. Then mark the 30gb partition as ext4 partition to be mounted at /home, but not mark it to be formatted. When I choose "Install Now" I got the following message:
- Code: Select all
Some of the partitions you created are too small. Please make the following partitions at least this large:
If you do not go back to the partitioner and increase the size of these partitions, the installation may fail.
What must I do if I want all the data in /home to be intact and can be read/write in the new Mint 12 installation?
