    Consider this a mild *bump* - or should I have started a new thread?

    [ubuntu] Re: fresh install vs. upgrade

    Hi guys; just trying to get some confirmations on my suspicions here.

    I'm currently running Gutsy split across three partitions - /root, /home and swap.

    All the evidence I've seen on the forums...

    Well, I've given you a 'thanks' anyway, because you've put loads of effort into it. Not your fault it hasn't worked out. I suspect maybe this is something that just won't get sorted out until it's...

    Heh - I know the dangers of root-access GUI browsers. I've killed a few Wind0$e installs that way in my time. Anyway, no dead sysytem this time, but no luck either; pasting the file in the browser...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: copying home directory from fiesty to hardy install fails to transfer settings

    I'm curious about a similar upgrade path - in my case Gutsy to Hardy.

    Three partitions: 50GB /root, 148GB /home, 2GB /swap.

    Hah! This is weird:

    No such file or directory

    OK, so what's the fix? I thought I'd downloaded the firmware as part of the previous processes ... it's a jolly old learning curve, this command line business! :)
