Re: Installing LM 19.1

I have just confirmed that I donot have a seperate /home directory. This is all I have as attached.

I have installed "backintime" and making a backup of /home. Will it still work?
When I install LM19.1 I will make a separate /home is that the idea, so I can copy my old /home into it?

I keep getting this message each and every time I use the text editor. In the end I reverted back to my backup LM18.3 wh...

I am flabbergasted myself what is going on with my system. Every time now if this new drive is not /dev/sda the ...
