Re: [SLE] 7.2 -> 8 update problem

I'd like this too. I'm really hesitant to ask almost the same quetion in a different way but I'm still a bit confused.
I copied over the /etc and /home directories to another machine.
I switched hard drives and did a clean install of 8. By the way it was way smopoth, and am I crazy or are K apps like Konqueror running and loading faster now over 7.2?
Anyway, in order to restore things to a semblance of what they are, such as my network settings, I suppose I just need to make sure the new config files say essentially what the old ones did about hosts and what not.
If I just install my /home/userX/ directory, should that simply reinstall all programs I had installed as that user? Or is there ANOTHER directory (something about /share pops to mind) I need to mirror as well? And am I copying those directories wholesale or just specific files within them?
Sorry if this is vague; I'll try to be more clear if someone could let me know HOW I can be more helpful to the list in understanding what I'm trying to do.

I am in the same dilema. I did a clean install on a couple of desktops and
the install went flawlessly, but my two main machines have too many 'custom'
software and configurations to really wipe clean and start again. My main
worry is that if 8.1+ still doesn not work on the upgrade it will be harder
to do a clean install and get things up and running again.
It would help if there was an app that created a list of all software and
config files that were not part of the current installed version of SuSE so
you have at least a detailed 'todo' list.
