Hi, all -
When I installed Felicia I created separate partitions for the following:
Primary partition for /
and of course /home.
To upgrade to Gloria, I suppose the route which best combines safety and convenience is as follows:
Save markings in Synaptic to a file in /home
Backup /home [I'll be copying it entirely, including hidden files, to the server]
Fresh install to /, /usr, /tmp, /var
I suppose the three questions I have are these:
When I'm installing Gloria, can I simply leave /home unformatted and expect a problem-free upgrade, or should I start with a clean /home, and copy over what I need? [The latter is what I did when I upgraded my laptop from Elyssa.]
Will Synaptic in Gloria happily install markings from Felicia? I don't see why not.
I'm resigned to adding repos again in sources.list; does Gloria now include a neato way of adding keys [I haven't found it], or is it the apt-key route again?
Thanks in advance!
