So there is this free space partition and I want to create an LVM. So I can’t seem to press OK. I have tried playing around with the Physical Extent Suze but that doesn’t seem to do anything.
I am very confused as to how to use this.
I want to essentially create an encrypted partition and inside this encrypted partition I want to have an LVM and inside the LVM I want to have two partitions, one for root and one for home. Is this possible?
Should I first format that free space partition and use these settings?
And encrypt it?
If I do this it shows this.
If I were to click on this partition and select New Volume Group I get these options.
I tried nearly the same as @unix_lover wanted to do.
My testing laptop has one single hard drive. My plan was to partition the hard drive with 100MB for EFI on FAT32, 500MB for /boot on ext4 and the rest for a LVMonLUKS where the root, /home and swap partitions should be inside. But if I start the installer I struggle to create the volume group inside the lvm2 pv while manually partitioning the hard drive as shown above.
@Bryanpwo / @joekamprad:
Is it correct, that an installation with a mix like mentioned above is not possible in calamares?
Do I need to create the LVMonLUKS prior to the start of the installer like it was described in the great tutorial @joekamprad made for Antergos.
Or do we still need the great tutorial from @2000 for LVMonLUKS or BTRFSonLVM?
LVM creation is mostly not working at all only with calamares, it is possible only with workarounds
I will try to install using the old tutorial from Antergos first and will report here.
As maybe read in the other thread LVM and LUKS encryption are only working with the latest installer in the following ways:
- Encryption without LVM.
There you have two different possibilities:
- Use the complete disk encrypted. You can choose it in the installer at the step where you partition the drive
- You can manually partition the drive, e.g. a
/boot-partition and a second partition for the system and data which you can encrypt.
- Encryption with LVM.
You only can use the two tutorials of @2000.
Every other way is not working because of limitations of calamares.
