Subject: [gentoo-user] Reinstall + switch to KDE
Date: Mon, 10 Sep 2012 16:14:55
1 Hello,
2 because I broke me PC and I need to reinstall it I'm going ask what
3 should I preserve to make install faster:
5 1. I presume that /home can be left intact.
6 2. I plan to backup /etc and after reinstall I'm going to "diff"
7 /etc.old with /etc to see what changed and to keep my previous changes
8 in config.(not to forget to change make.conf according to switch to KDE)
9 3. Also I'm going to keep kernel .config and /boot intact.
10 4. World file will be also backed-up and during reinstall I'm going to
11 strip it of unnecessary Gnome packages to switch to KDE.
13 Did I missed something? Should I take care of something else?
15 Thank you for your advices in advance
