running bear, a new user,
http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=2939.msg14150;topicseen

He has 3 hard drives: Pardus, Linuxmint and /home in the third. He doesn't know how to assign the /home to the 3th drive. He did manual partitioning.

Can you write the detailed steps to do this? Thank you

From this description it is not very clear to me how the situation really is?  Huh?
Maybe  he can use a symbolic link to /home or the 3th drive.
And my knowledge of Spanish is zero ! Wink

try to explain
I have three hd,
I linuxmint installed in sda1
in the partition sdb1 home linuxmint
I installed pardus in sdc1

to perform installation of pardus chose the manual partition, but probably not correctly indicate that wanted sdb1 as home.

the question is whether there is any instruction to indicate that the home is pardus partition sdb1.

explained me hope, thank you very much.



Sorry about my English, is google translate

This means you want to use the directory /home on sdb1 for Pardus and Linuxmint?
If that's the case, the answer is: That's not possible.
And if you want to use /home on sdb1 exclusively for Pardus, the easiest option is to do a new installation with exact the same user name and password already existing for /home on sdb1 and make sure that the mark at "Format:" (look here for P2008 and here for P2009) is NOT set.
I am busy making the English pictures for Pardus 2009. They will be uploaded to here today.
I hope this will help you further! Smiley

Wait a minute!  My /home is shared by VectorLinux, Pardus, and Ubuntu with no problems.  It is VERY possible.  What you will need to do is use a different user name for your account so that settings from Mint and Pardus don't mix.


What you need is an entry in your /etc/fstab file that looks like this:
Code:
/dev/sdb1    /home            ext3      defaults,user        1 2

This assumes that your home partition is formatted ext3.  If it's ext4 or xfs or jfs or reiserfs you'll substitute the appropriate filesystem.

I agree with you ...... but this means you are making different users.
And my answer
That's not possible.
isn't 100% true. There is a workaround. I apologize for that. Embarrassed

Another question to caitlyn:
Which partition do you select at Creating User partition?
Or do you skip this step?
And in Pardus  the /home partition gets the options defaults,user_xattr,noatime    0 0   ?
