Default multi boot question : about sharing /home between several installs

Hi list,



As a newbie I like to know if it is possible to share the /home
directory for 2 different installs of linux



Google for it but can't find an answer (maybe don't type the right
sentence ?)



Let me explain : after 5 months of tries and tries I finally have a
Linux who almost do what I like it to.

In the other hand, it sounds good to share the Free's Xmas Gift, and I
never be impolite and refuse a gift.



So, to try Free Ekanayaka's present, without erasing these 5 months of
hard work for me -maybe Free and I

don't want the same for the PC to do ?- I like to create a new
partition on the disk, but it's not so big

and it could be usefull* if the /home directory could be share between
the 2 installs.



Do someone here says how it can be done ? Have to acknowledge I search
but don't find the way to do !!



Or maybe there is a stratagem to circumvent the problem ?



Anyway, thanks for Everybody here to do what is done here, especially
you Free !



Happy New Year Eveybody !



Fred

Hi,

apt-get remove --purge gdm
apt-get install gdm

This was a solution for the problem...

Also panel was a little bit broken missing applets, no trash-bin on desktop, windows no falling down on panel, disappear somewhere after minimize icon click.

Slightly different behaviour of desktop, but probably easy to get used.

What is recommended repos for upgrading now?

Ubuntu, Debian Lenny/Sid and 64studio Lenny-backport can be mixed together?

Thank you for help Dave
Thank you for Christmas gift Free

Happy New year ;-)

I am going to guess that the default ones are the "recommended" repos.



Ubuntu, Debian Lenny/Sid and 64studio Lenny-backport can be mixed together?



The short answer is no. If you really know what you are doing you may
be able to mix and match, but in my experience this is more hassle than
it is worth.

Hi Mira,

Great to see you got up an running :-)

Checkout the fixes in my first post.
To correct the kernel error message you see in the boot verbose.

$ sudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf

Comment out these entries.

#kernel.maps_protect =1
#vm.mmap_min_addr = 65536

If you run a search for "dpkg-old" or "old" you can checkout which files
have been changed during the upgrade.

$ sudo find / -name '*old'

$ apt-cache policy gconf-editor

Installing gconf-editor might help with some of your desktop settings.

Happy New year ;-)

Cheers!
dave.
