Preserve /home partition with 14.1 Xfce Live

From Salix OS
Jump to: navigation, search

You may notice that attempting to install 14.1 from the Xfce/LiveCD will install everything to one partition /root. This is fine for some users, however, others prefer to have /home (personal folders etc...) in its own partition. This can be done simply by doing the following in the LiveCD environment:

download updated sli package

then upgrade

sudo spkg -u sli-1.2.3-x86_64-1dj.txz

download updated Slackware-Live package

then upgrade

sudo spkg -u slackware-live-0.4.5-noarch-1dj.txz

And proceed with installation using a separate home partition.
