Indeed setting up a home partition is more advanced compared to the standard install process, but still relatively easy considering you were able to follow linux22's tutorial.lofi wrote: ↑Wed Nov 16, 2022 1:12 pmok, I remember repeating here what I heard elsewhere, that it was hard. Of course it depends on our level. That sentence was probably addressed to a beginner, of course here we are in the Chad thread! Can't be that hard!It is very easy to set up a home partition
It all boils down to creating 2 partitions (say
mint-home) out of your
sda2_encryptpartition and add adequate mountpoints to your system's
- If only willing to modify an existing install, it would involve performing the operations from a Live USB system (after making sure to have up to date backups just in case since an error with partitioning can cause data loss and messing with fstab might prevent your system to reboot though that issue can always be fixed restoring or correcting fstab file from a Live USB System...).
- If you perform a clean install, that would be even easier, just create the partition layout (I did it using LVM and you can find for inspiration the commands I used and a note of warning in the two first points of this post) and then in Ubiquity you will be able to add the /home mountpoint via the GUI (cf. first screenshot of p.11 of linux22 FDE tutorial v1.4 - it would be one more step similar to that one for root mountpoint).
