I started using FreeBSD around the time 4.0 was released. Using the old FreeBSD installer, it was possible to install the operating system without re-partitioning & re-slicing the hard drive every time. Is there a way with the PCBSD installer to do the following:
My system currently has the following mountpoints:
- / (/dev/ada0s2a)
- /var (/dev/ada0s2d)
- /usr (/dev/ada0s2e)
- /home (/dev/ada0s2f)
Is it possible to install PCBSD, WITHOUT
changing the disk partitions / slices, and having it perform a "newfs" only on the /, /var, and /usr mountpoints, and NOT TOUCH
the /home filesystem?
If so, how does one accomplish this? I have a system that I "broke the rules" and installed some ports, then upgraded PCBSD and now have no way of uninstalling the ports I had installed prior to the upgrade...Would like to "cleanse" the PCBSD install *WITHOUT* having to dump/restore my /home partition...
Thank you for the help...I know the old FreeBSD installer could do this, I haven't figured out how to get the PCBSD installer to do it...
