Is it recommended to allocate /boot mount point to a separate partition? What type of file system is recommended for it? FAT? NTFS? EXT2? EXT4?
Welcome to the Linux Mint forums! For help, knowledge, and fellowship.
/bootbeing good practice but a separate
/homeis separate, you can re-install Linux without losing your data.
The default installer does not create LVM by default.alex-n3050 wrote: ⤴Thu May 17, 2018 4:29 amIn this case I will have only one root partition on my disk? Does this mean that in this case you can do without LVM?
During the Linuxmint installation process, the default installer always creates LVM or not? In this case, will only one root partition be created?
Long time ago there was a bios-limit (8 GB) for the bootable partition, so a separate
/bootwas crucial if the disk was big.
That's works nicely. Adding a "data" partition later is easy, and better than having a separate /home.
I've never had the installer create LVM, and you can tell the installer whether or not to make separate /boot and /home partitions ("something else" = you control everything), though, IIRC, "use the whole disk" and "install alongside" make one linux partition (plus a swap partition).During the Linuxmint installation process, the default installer always creates LVM or not?
