    Of course it is, everybody does that - provided you have home on a separate partition and do not
    format it.

    The installation procedure will automatically read your user name and password if you tell it to do
    so at the proper moment.

    You also need to keep the .gnupg/ directory.

    Yes, I totally agree. And it's a good thing, too. Some of the beta releases of 12.2 wanted to reformat "/home". I'm glad I caught that. (It was an installer bug, that was fixed in time for the 12.2 final release).

    hello dear nrickert and gogalthorp, hello robin listas,


    many thanks for the valuable hints. That is very good to know. Well - i will clear up the situation and the partitioning now - before i do the installation. That means i will examine the partitioning now - and make up my mind what (kind of) PARTITIONS i have right now. And then i am somewhat prepared - when it comes to the certain steps within the installation-process.


    @robin Listas: you say:

    You also need to keep the .gnupg/ directory.

    well - i guess that this is in the home directory too - isnt it!?






    many thank for all you did!
    this is a superb-place. I am glad to be here. Have a great day you three

    Of course, but that answer was in the context of keeping ".thunderbird" only.
