Installing on a laptop with a compressed /homw btrfs partition.
One of one of my laptops I have two btrfs partitions / and /home (in addition to swap). Ubuntu 13.10 installed without problem on these partitions. The way I install Ubuntu is formatting / and delete everything except for my personal data and media from /home. I format / and keep /home unformatted to keep the data. This always works very well. However, I have enabled compression on the /home partition and wonder how that will play out when I want to reinstall using my prefered method keeping personal data on /home? Will the installer detect that /home is compressed and set fstab accordingly, or if I have to remove compression how do I do that?
