What's the best way to restore all of the users of a system after an upgrade?
Is it best to enter all of the users during the install, then restore /etc/passwd and /etc/group, and restore their home directories?
Or, is it possible to skip entering the users during the install and just restore the above files? I think I tried this during the last upgrade and ran into problems with the login screen.
Just wondering how people handle this. Especially if you have a lot of users. I just have a few on my system at home.
This would be a nice feature for Mint to add. Save all of the user info before the upgrade, and restore it after.
