Not formatting /home during install
August 22, 2007 02:49PM

Looking at the gem install process it seems to give no option other than to format ones /home drive (rather than simply enable it). This is not what I want to be doing.

I have currently installed gem without formatting the /home directory and the system has defaulted to placing a new /home directory on my / disk (hda2). I have a couple of options, in this order, that I cannot carry out due to lack of skill.

1. During installation I would like to set my main /home directory (hda3) as the one I want to use without formatting it, this is easily done in a Debian installation

2. Set /mnt/home as my main /home (hda3) drive for this newly installed system

There currently doesn't seem to be a lot of elive related literature out there so aid would be much appreciated.
