    Multiple distros (debian and kubuntu) sharing swap and /home partitions


    Is it possible, or would it cause problems?

    I'm currently multibooting WinXP, Ubuntu and Debian (sarge). I thought I'd give Kubuntu a go, since my main Ubuntu objections are because of Gnome.

    Ubuntu and Debian currently have separate swap partitions, since I added RAM in between installations and gave debian more swap space.

    If I add Kubuntu, could I set its swap and /home partitions to share the debian ones already there?

    yes, the swap i know you can share...and i'm pretty sure you can share your /home directory safely too
