I'm using Fedora 15 (188.8.131.52-5.fc15.x86_64) on an HP Mini 210. I'm planning to re-install Fedora 15.
I have backed up my home directory. Do I need to back up all the hidden files in my home directory? Most of them are just self-generated configuration files, e.g. xsession-errors. I'm already planning to back up some files, like my emacs and git. What about the rest? Are there any particular files that I should back up? Will it cause any problems if I overwrite the hidden files from the clean install with my current hidden files?
