Re: HURD and Linux on same partition




Porting is not the same as installing on the same filesystem. Each
version of Debian you mentioned needs its own filesystem to work with.
Again, this is NOT a simple matter of just using the same files with a
different kernel! The infrastructure of each OS is fundamentally
different. You NEED to use a different partition for each of them.

Good luck.
