I managed to install EndeavourOS on an external drive on my laptop. First time ever on Arch!
Aside from lot’s of configuration details and look and feel I got all critical items up and running, with one exception. I need my / and / to be encrypted and on btrfs!
The setup I am coming from is:
- EFI: FAT32
- Boot: ext4
- / and /home on luks with btrfs
But somehow I wasn’t able to set LUKS + BTRFS during my installation. Each one on it’s own would have worked but not in combination. The moment I select LUKS I can’t change the filesystem any longer, and from previous experience with Calamares I know it’s going to default to ext4.
I also tried to pre-configure the partitions and assign the folders manually but this didn’t work either, Calamares complained it wasn’t able to open the partition…
Has anyone got an idea how I could get this to work?
