Good to know. I thought about even migrating my 32-bit debian setup to 64-bit once I have a suitable laptop. I think you can safely recreate both of those. But the Nepomuk one only if you didn't add your own tags or other hand-made information. > Amarok is a different case.

But not this one. Maybe you can dump it, if you install a 32 bit - I don't know if a 64 bit MySQL will work - MySQL server and put the directory /home/martin/.kde/share/apps/amarok/mysqle/amarok into /var/lib/mysql. Maybe there is another command for dumping an MySQL embedded database. Did you use a search engine to find something like that?  http://teddyb.org/~rlpowell/hobbies/debian_arch_up/ Ciao, -- Martin 'Helios' Steigerwald - http://www.Lichtvoll.de GPG: 03B0 0D6C 0040 0710 4AFA B82F 991B EAAC A599 84C7
