Switching distros, preserving ~ contents?
I'm replacing most of the gubbinses inside my computer, including a switch to X86-64, and so i thought this would also be a good time to try out a new distro, i want to give Kubuntu a shot.
The problem is that there's about 70Gb of various things in my home dir/partition (i'm the sole user) that i really don't want to lose, and i can't find enough HDDs to make the room to back it up (i've already got backups of what's most important).
If I try to get Kubuntu to just mount that partition as the new home directory, will all the apps that have installed themselves in there still work? Also, how could i transfer some of the configs from old to new? Like the look and feel of KDE, and mail accounts from KMail?
