Simple Home Partition Selection Box Option during Install

Asked by Richard Neal

Would it be possible to add a "Create Separate Home Partition" option as part of the install process, either automatically done or a tick box. Many alternate distributions have been offering this option for a few years now and its a very mature way to setup a system. This option makes a clean install update allot easier (just tell the installer not to format the /home partition) and reduces the stress to all during the whole update process (especially for those who prefere clean installs).

Sure it's possible. Suggest it as a feature by clicking the "Blueprints" tab at the top of this page.

Is it possible to make this partition from an already installed system?

Can you help with this problem?
