Thread: Likes Ubuntu.

  1. #1

    Default Likes Ubuntu.

    Had some strange stuffs happening with my ubuntu install (been upgrading and no reload since 10.04, was using a 32bit machine before that, replaced the hard drive once, motherboard once and various other things inbetween so the install was getting a little dodgy).


    I started having it halt on boot and decided it's time for a fresh install.

    Live cd in, mounted my encrypted home folder (bout 10 minutes), copied all my stuff to another drive (few hours, about 600GB), fresh install and copied whatever I needed from the old home folder into the new one.
    Working perfectly, including all my settings for firefox, virtualbox etc.

    nice and simple

    Even easier/quicker for me, I had a /home partition on the disk I installed the new OS (Kubuntu) on. All I had to do was to tell the installer to use it.

    Was it encrypted?

    Want tp play with other distros, no time though and this is a working machine.

    Will have to put together a machine out of all the old ones in my office and use it to see what I like.

    Similar, but my second drive as /home works like a dream and no need to copy stuff with loads of space.
    .... and thanks for all the fish.

    Of course. It still looks like crap (or at least the last time I tried it).
