I'm building LFS version 6.8 on a x64 Intel i5(1st gen) processor running open SuSE 11.4(32 bit) as the host OS.
Here is the partitioning scheme I've used:
Device boot Id System
sda1 27 Hidden NTFS WinRe
sda2 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
sda3 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
sda4 * 5 Extended
sda5 82 Linux swap/Solaris
sda6 83 Linux
sda7 83 Linux(the LFS partition)
sda8 83 Linux
sda9 83 Linux
sda3 is Windows 7 partition
sda6 is /, sda8 is home, and sda9 is boot in open SuSE, i haven't assigned any dedicated partitions in LFS (for boot, home etc) apart from sda7.
My question is that how should i go about "Making the LFS system bootable"? I have the following layout in mind for /etc/fstab--
# Begin /etc/fstab
# file system mount-point type options dump fsck
/dev/sda7 / ext3 defaults 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=4,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
# End /etc/fstab
Also how do i set up GRUB? Should i overwrite the MBR?
