woody and demudi/sid on one machine
just bought a nice big hard drive so I have lots of space, and thought
it would be fun to run stable and unstable simultaneously on my
machine. In fact, more specifically, here is my plan:
-continue to run woody in its current location
-install a second copy of woody in a new partition, and use it as the
base system for an installation of demudi -- which broke stuff the
lastt time I tried to install it. Once I get that working, I'd like
to slowly start migrating the demudi distribution to sid.
My question is: what partitions can I share between the distros? And
if I want to be able to change freely back and forth between them with
chroot, what do I have to be careful to keep consistent? So for
instance, do I need to be absolutely sure to have the same kernel in
both distros? And can I share /usr/local, /var, and /home? What else?
ANy advice is welcome. Including advising me that this is a stupid
plan. thanks for the help,
