Upgrade from Mint (ubuntu) to LMDE with /home intact

Postby Cgirl on Tue Apr 30, 2013 11:38 pm

Hi,
I've been using mint for quite a while and am very pleased with it!
I've been wanting to try LMDE for a while now, and I think it's time to bit the bullet.
I already have a separate /home partition. Can I safely install LMDE over my current Mint standard installation? What do I need to watch for? Are there any particular packages I should be wary of, or directories I should be holding onto?
Even though I'm reasonably comfortable with Linux, day to day, I'm certainly a newb in this department!
Thanks for your help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

as long as you format the system partition during the installation everything should be okay. I also migrated from nadia to LMDE and everything is running fine.
