I've done several clean installs of Elyssa out of necessity - see my previous posts - initially without a separate Home partition and then with one.
One things that confuses me is that if one chooses to format only the root partition, leaving the Home partition and Swap as they were, at the end of the installation one ends up with a folder named <user> Home and the original Home partition is renamed to something else. Why is this? In my ignorance I would have thought that as one chooses to retain Home, the partitioner would be intelligent enough to accept that and NOT create another Home. I concede that it is probably something I am doing wrong. If so, I would like to know what it is, please.
