dual boot want to delete newer mint keeping old,(solved)

Postby fleamailman on Wed Apr 01, 2009 4:00 am

Ok, all my passwords and stuff are in the old version d(Daryna) and is perfect for these two old laptops, both are dual boot mint/mint, so my two goals are:

1) on the first computer, I would like to uninstall the newer version of mint, as it seems to freeze from time to time while on the Internet, while also the streaming stops after 10 seconds. = delete e version mint installed, keep d version

2) I have another laptop with the latest version of Mint, same stream problem at this point, but there I would like to transfer the old system to the new, and not just my bookmarks as offered, but my passwords for site too. = delete d version mint installed, keep f version

(anyway, I love mint btw have gnome solved the problem of having a difference background picture for background then, I loved that under kubuntu but Mint is just so much easier to install being all prebundled)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It seems like the main thing you want to preserve is things related to firefox (bookmarks, saved passwords, etc). The easiest way to do this is make a backup of the ~/.mozilla directory and restore it (copy it back) once you're done installing.
