# Reinstall Ubuntu with encrypted home directory?

I have actually Ubuntu 10.04 mounted with encrypted home directory. /home gets on a a different dividing. Can I simply boot from a 10.10 CD, reformat / and also install customarily? Should it function if I make use of the very same password? Exists anything else to remember?

I have actually formerly done this on Ubuntu and also Mandriva.

This will certainly function and also you will certainly have the ability to place your existing/ residence partition also if it is secured as long as you recognize the passphrase.

Point to remember is to set up the place factors appropriately and also do not mistakenly format your/ residence partition.

You need to take a note of your place passphrase. This is covered on the web page
