Fresh Install of LM Elyssa [Thanks for the advice!]

Postby tberndt67 on Wed Jun 25, 2008 10:17 pm

I just downloaded Elyssa and I have some questions regarding a fresh install since that is the advised method. Is it possible to install it to the root without loosing all of my info in the home directory? When I installed Daryna, it was on a newly created partition. My system consists of a Dell E1505 with 1 GM of memory. The harddrive is set up in a dual boot with Vista Pro Home. I'm a little intimidated by attempting the new install without royally screwing up my Linux OS. Any insight or suggestions will be much appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you have a separate home partition you will keep all your data - just move all the hidden folders in home into a folder first
If you don't have a separate home partition here's how to make one ... _partition
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
