http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello. I'm a fresh user of linux. My opensuse 11.2 crashed yesterday and the partition table was missing. As I have two separate hard disks installed in my computer and the old system was on the first disk, now I'm trying to reinstall suse 11.2 on the second one which is empty and has not been partitioned yet. When I arrived at the page of partitioning settings, it shows the recommended partitioning plan like this: /dev/sda1 2.01GB linux_swap Swap Swap /dev/sda2 20.0GB linux_native Ext4 /dev/sda3 909.5GB linux_native Ext4 dev/sdb1 20.0GB F linux_native Ext4 / /dev/sdb1 911.5GB F linux_native Ext4 /home And some extra information when pushing the "import mount points" button: A previous system with the following mounting points was detected: /etc/fstab found on /dev/sda2 /dev/sda1 swap /dev/sda2 / /dev/sda3 /home So what should I do next? And is it still possible for me to rescue the files under sda3 (the old home directory) after I install the new system on sdb? Thanks in advance!! (Distributions)
