Ok, thanks, this is perfect.

One last question. You say:

Besides this, you will have to create a user with the same name. E.g, if your username was "foo" while using 2007, you will add a user "foo" in YALI. That's for permission issues. If all goes well, you will be able to login into your new box with the same name and same configuration files.

I guess you mean when we arrive at this screen: http://www.pardus.org.tr/eng/screenshots/installation/screen-07.html , we just need to select the right partition, in my case /dev/sda1 as root.

The question is: I would be afraid that adding the same user would erase the "old" user and write over. So, from what you explain, that will not be the case? I can do this and just specify the same password?

Goodmorning,  That is good news about upgrading from 2007.3 to 2008 Finial.  I guess I can download and install 2007.3 now.  I tried SIDUX live cd this morning. Seting up ADSL was very easy. Did not have to drop to a terminal window at all.  I haven't installed SIDUX but am waiting to see the the error: (System Error. Program Terminated. Bad magic number for file header) for Pardus was fixed. It's NOT!  Maybe fixed later today.  Is anyone else using 2008.rc1???  I was wondering if it's just me having this problem.

Right, then select right partition as /home and uncheck the format option

The user you added in your 2007 will be deleted because you're formatting root partition. User informations is store in the /etc/passwd file Smiley USer's files are stored in /home directory. Just add the same user while installing 2008.

By the way, the new partition editor looks like this in 2008. It's more developed now, the screenshot is rather old Smiley

Eren, you deserve your Pardus Master title, thank you very much for all your time.
The information above is so valuable that a Wiki page could be posted, for the benefit of other linux idiots like me  Wink

Thanks Smiley

Have you tried to install Pardus 2008? I think, it's better to express your experiences while installing Pardus 2008 with /home directory preserved. You can write the document more properly if you try and succed installing it because I may have missed some points Smiley

If there were a wiki page pointing how to migrate from 2007 to 2008, it would be really great for users.

Hello Eren,

if I could better write English, I would write a wiki page pointing how to migrate Pardus from 2007 to 2008.

I am a German and therefore my English is not good enough. Wink

Hello,

thank you very much. Smiley

I looked in the Wiki and searched by "Upgrading" and have the following results:

http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pardus:Upgrading/2008

http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pardus:Migration/2007-2008

http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pardus:Upgrading/2007-2008#Upgrading_procedure

The two former wiki pages can be deleted (my mistake). The latter is the real one.
