Hi everybody. I am planning to upgrade to 12.04 and intending to do it by a fresh install once it is released. I am using a fresh install to ensure that I have a nice clean new system that doesn't include any errors that I have made on the way in 11.10. This of course would mean a complete re-install of all the apps I am running that I want to keep and am prepared to do this...but I came across this post :
and wanted to ask if anyone has had any experience with this method and if it is safe or reliable to do. I have tested the method to the point of 'saving the markings' to an external drive but looking at the contents of that saved file, I am fairly sure that everything has been copied including all system installations. Would this mean a conflict between version installations if I tried to re-install software using this method?
Any comments welcome. Thanks
