hi,
is it possible to go back to an earlier stable version (without loosing
data) from the 9 version or would the 9 version block it?
thanks thanks

You would have to do a fresh install. If you have /home on a separate
partition, you could just leave that in place and don't format it, so you
wouldn't lose your /home data. Again, it would have to be on it's own partition
to do that. I don't recommend downgrading though, perhaps we can straighten out
whatever it is that makes you want to downgrade. :)

An example of a separate home partition....
Code:
 df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3             7.1G  3.4G  3.4G  51% /
/dev/sda5              58G   23G   33G  41% /home
/dev/sda1              92M   38M   49M  44% /boot
tmpfs                 502M     0  502M   0% /dev/shm

You ~could~ set this up from your existing installation right now but it's going to mean a lot of messing about with partitions, unmounting, resizing and labeling. The main advantage is that I can make copies of ~/ and transfer them to other machines.

Here's how it's done at install time:- http://www.jayeola.org/dump/SS-alpha/sc ... t-0010.png

you can leave the data unchanged to keep using that partition from a new installation or downgrade.
