Description Håvard Bjåstad 2004-11-22 13:22:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041110 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: I had a system with FC2, with /home on a separate partition. Instead of upgrading FC2 to FC3, I wanted to keep FC2 as a fallback option, so I installed FC3 on a new partition, keeping /home and the old FC2 partition. After installation, I realized that FC3 had overwritten the customized .bashrc file in my user's home directory. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Didn't try Additional info:

Nothing owns /home/*, so I don't see how this could happen. Is this reproducible? What did it overwrite it with?
Comment 2 Håvard Bjåstad 2004-11-22 16:15:46 UTC
Not sure if it's reproducible (I haven't had time to go through a full new install...). My custom .bashrc had been overwritten with the default .bashrc that you get when creating new users. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until I booted up after everything had been installed, so I don't know at what point during the installation it happened. I did ask FC3 to create myself as a user, maybe that's when it happened?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-22 17:14:26 UTC
Yeah, I think that's expected. If you select to add a user, it runs useradd, which copies the skeleton files.
