I upgraded by ubuntu 8.04 laptop installation to 8.10 a few weeks ago, and due to a pretty stupid move on my part (trying to move the laptop in the middle of the upgrade and losing power), I coudlnt get back into the OS and had to reformat the OS partition and do a clean install.Â All my data was safe as it was intentionally stored on a seperate partition, but I had a complete waste of a day trying to reconfigure my firefox browser back to the state I am used to.
I didnt appreciate just how much I depend onit now, for saving passwords, updated scnaner ettings, bookmarks, quick links etc.Â I certainly know now!
My question is this: if I had to do this again on the same machine, which directories in linux do I have to backup so that if I could recreate exectly the system I have now, armed only with the backup and a fresh ubuntu 8.10 OS CD?
Suggestions welcome pelase!
Lesson:Â backup now.
BTW, I did use FEBE, but I couldnt restore from it.
