Greetings from Ireland! What, please, is the best and safest procedure for transferring all files, configurations, preferences, downloads, etc, from our existing openSUSE 11.4 KDE to a brand new installation of Mint 17.1 KDE, using a Netgear 4-bay NAS as the intermediate back-up and cloning medium?

In particular, I shall appreciate very much receiving kind recommendations on the partitioning aspect of this task. Should the hard disc of our Mint installation PC be set up with THREE (3) partitions: namely /, /home and /boot? Also, whatever be the optimum partitioning, would Mint then partition and transfer data automatically from openSUSE 11.4 KDE via an NAS full clone in X-RAID2 mode? Please advise!

Many thanks, fellow penguins!

So sorry to note that no-one on this forum has been able help me with my above enquiry.

However, the good folks over on the Linux Mint forum have provided me the answers I was seeking. So, in order to assist folks maybe seeking an answer to their own similar installation problems, just go to the Linux Mint forum and search for "MagnifiKat" and/or "How partition Mint 17.1 KDE for NAS data transfer?".

I have tried to provide a direct route to my particular posting, but unfortunately (and most unhelpfully, since I am new on this site!), this website has frustrated my sincere attempt so to do. Cheers!
