I'm using Linux Mint 17.3 and have created a new smaller disk with Mint 18. Now my plan is to mount the old partition from
/home on the new system. So I create all 3 users with same user name and password as on the old system and then edit
- I need to make sure that the numerical uid and gid match, how do I do that?
- Is there any other thing to watch out for?
Ideally, I'd like to avoid running
chown on the old home, because I'd like to use the two systems in parallel until I'm confident the transition was successful. But I'm a bit worried that I missed something.
