Sometimes I need most of my disk space in the root partition and sometimes I need it in my home partition. So the logical conclusion for me is that I need a combined partition. I don’t make use of any of the benefits that a home partition provides anyway.
But to my surprise the installer doesn’t appear to allow doing that.
I would like:
- 1 “/swap” partition (32Gib, encrypted)
- 1 “/boot” partition (1Gib, encrypted if possible?)
- 1 “/boot/efi” partition (600Mib, encrypted if possible?)
- 1 “/” partition (the remaining ~450Gib, encrypted, btrfs)
(and the “/” partition should then simply have a /home directory)
The weird thing is that once I remove the /home partition in the installer, there is no option to increase the size of “/” accordingly. Am I doing something wrong?
Another weird thing is that I can enable encryption for /boot and /boot/efi, but it automatically resets itself when I select a different partition. Can these partitions even be encrypted?
