View Full Version : [kubuntu] Install over mythbuntu deleted all my media!!!

October 4th, 2009, 10:18 PM
I had my system partitioned out nearly the recommneded mythbuntu style, with a large partition for /var/lib
I also had another drive mounted at /var/lib/mythtv/music

/ was a different small partition
/ home was another partition

I installed kubuntu 9.04 over top of this, formatting / but leaving the rest intact.

Part way through it mentioned removing conflicting files.

THIS WAS MY EFFING MEDIA! All my recorded shows, videos, and music are gone. The installer just deleted about 1TB of USER DATA!!!

I've been using linux since downloading a box of floppy disks for slackware back in 1996. That this installer would do this is completely unacceptable and pure garbage. I am literally seething in rage right now.
