It is less than a year that I moved from slackware to VL-5.8. The way I have set-up my box moving house is always a long process until the last picture is hung so-to-speak. Now since one cannot upgrade to VL-5.9 instead one will have to make a fresh installation I have to repeat the process of moving again.
I have installed VL-5.9-STD on my second HD and during the Beta and RC versions hooked on my VL-5.8 /usr/local and /home partitions of my first HD. The ideas is that I build the new box step by step for my liking without interrupting my home. When eventually finished I would move /root to the first HD. Just as I did moving from slackware to VL
That worked very well until I installed the final Gold version of VL-5.9. I could go back and forth from VL-5.9 to VL-5.8 with my actual /home partition of VL-5.8. Now with the final installation X will not open for my /home squeaking about .ICEauthority and/or .Xauthority.
If then in VL-5.9 I delete me as a user and add again I can enter /home with X, however, I then have a problem in VL-5.8 opening my /home with X.
So my question: why was there no such problem with the Beta and RC versions of VL-5.9 and what would I have to do with the final version that I can use /home of VL-5.8 interchangeable w/o hasle? If no other solution I could possibly safe those files for each version and install them as needed???
Happy New Year
