I want to install EndeavourOS on my HTPC / Gaming build, which has a 256Gb NVME and a 4Tb HDD.
I am at a loss as to how to create the partition tables, for example /root on the NVME, but where to put the SWAP file? If I want to install games, which part of the OS should be installed on the HDD (to use the extra space)?
Should I encrypt only the NVME?
(There will surely be more questions coming this way…)
for your system you only need worry about 1 drive the other drive would be for storage. the nvme is a ssd type disk so I would use that for the os giving the os the speed. I would just use ext4 or btrfs if you plan on snap shots. The 4 tb i would format with ext4 if not being shared with a windows system or you may need to go ntfs if you do plan to share with windows. As far as encryption that will be a personal choice.
So everything on the NVME and the /home on the 4Tb?
Where should I install the Swap File?
if i may speak for myself. i have two nvme’s. one with 256gb / and one 1tb /home. my swap file is on the / partition. that’s what i would advise you to do.
nvme1n1 259:0 0 931,5G 0 disk
└─nvme1n1p1 259:2 0 931,5G 0 part /home
nvme0n1 259:1 0 232,9G 0 disk
├─nvme0n1p1 259:3 0 500M 0 part /efi
└─nvme0n1p2 259:4 0 232,4G 0 part /
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/swapfile file 16777212 11520 -2
If you want swap to be fast then ssd/nvme, else hdd.
Thank you @swh that will be how I will set them up!
Youre welcome. Glad we could help you!
