I have 32bit 11.10 installed on an LVM disk taking up all 500 GB, and I would like to install 64bit 12.04 on top, preserving the data in my home directory.
I used to do that pre-LVM by just not formatting the partition mounted as
/home, installing over
/usr and formatting
/tmp, But now it don't recognize the partition table.
I've never had much luck with
upgrade and so I just install afresh when I want a new version.
Surely I can do what I want, can't I?
