How do I reinstall SuSE 10.1 without overwriting partitions?
I just did the unthinkable: I accidentally Cut and Pasted my /user/lib directory to another location. After pasting it back, my system doesn't boot. Seems like I need to reinstall.
So, here I am in Expert Partitioner. All partitions, md's and lv's are intact as they were when I originally installed the system last year. My question: How do I reinstall without overwriting some key partitions, like /home and another custom partition (/archive)that I originally created?
Here's my plan:
Assign mount points to /home and /archive in Expert Partitioner, but leave the format field at its previous setting (the box is grayed with e.g. Reiser written in it). Come to think of it, should I do that with all my partitions, since they were all formatted once before?
