how to set up this partition-logic with a root-swap-home-sheme - a very easy one;)


hello dear linux-experts,

i am currently planning a new (totally new and fresh installation of opensuse linux version 13.2

therefore i want to create new partitons on linux.

by the way - how do you like this idea: a three folded partition

what about this sheme:

to create a file structure like so
Code:
~> lsblk
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 465,8G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 156M 0 part /boot/efi
├─sda2 8:2 0 400M 0 part /boot
└─sda3 8:3 0 465,2G 0 part
└─cr_ata-ST500LT012-xxx_xxx-part3 254:0 0 465,2G 0 crypt
├─system-swap 254:1 0 2G 0 lvm [SWAP]
├─system-root 254:2 0 40G 0 lvm /
└─system-home 254:3 0 423,2G 0 lvm /home
can i create this with gparted

well - how to do that?

.update: to clear up all the things in this

how is this being done

Code:
└─cr_ata-ST500LT012-xxx_xxx-part3 254:0 0 465,2G 0 crypt
├─system-swap 254:1 0 2G 0 lvm [SWAP]
├─system-root 254:2 0 40G 0 lvm /
└─system-home 254:3 0 423,2G 0 lvm /home

note: i want to do this with gparted!

this line looks interesting. ....
Code:
└─cr_ata-ST500LT012-xxx_xxx-part3 254:0 0 465,2G 0 crypt
how to do this with gparted

many thanks for any and all help

Yes, we understand you want to do this with gparted...no need to say it three times. Also, you asked how to create partitions with gparted more than a year ago here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...to-4175463188/

Things haven't changed since. Also, you've had several different questions about partitioning:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ce-4175489376/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-a-4175463209/

How you partition your drive is totally up to you; you should read and follow the advice you've been given previously. And the best question is WHY use gparted at all?? You can format and partition your drive when you install openSUSE, including LVM's.
