View Full Version : [kubuntu] installing over the top of a previous installation

April 22nd, 2008, 01:13 PM
I want to install kubuntu straight over the top of a previous funked up installation (i know its not recommended)

When the installation freezes and I "alt-f4" the install is waiting for input whether to overwrite or keep an old file.

:confused:B4 you install you can put options after the install command, is there something like --automatic overwrite ?

Get Gparted Live CD. Delete the partitions occupied by the 'other' OS. Leave /swap alone. Then install Kubuntu, go Manual and use previously deleted partitions.

i don't understand what this means. if you delete a partition, how do you then 'use previously deleted particions' later?
