i am working on the installation of Angergos KDE (only) on my new Thinkpad x240. The original W7 will not be used and no data on the machine, thus, reformating possible at any time.
On the installed 512GB SSD I wanted to create following 5 partitions:
[b:2hj6hugd]root [/b:2hj6hugd]- 30 GB
[b:2hj6hugd]swap [/b:2hj6hugd]- 8,2 GB
[b:2hj6hugd]home [/b:2hj6hugd]- 380 GB
[b:2hj6hugd]boot2 [/b:2hj6hugd]- 0.5 GB (this to install a small independent system to boot up and make some repair tools available should I be away from home.)
[b:2hj6hugd]spare [/b:2hj6hugd]- the rest of about 80 GB
I used the graphical installation method and selected installation type “advanced”
Following problems I observed, thus these are my questions:
1 - The partition, which I called “[b:2hj6hugd]swap[/b:2hj6hugd]” cannot be mounted as the swap partition. So how does the machine know which is the swap partition? What do I need to do here? (Mounting possibilities given are: /, /home. /usr. /var)
2 - I could not create more than 4 partition also I have about 80 GB left. Is there a limitation within Antergos?
3 - Assuming I can create 5 partitions, how do I need to mount the 0.5 GB [b:2hj6hugd]boot2 [/b:2hj6hugd]partition so I can boot a small OS from there? Can I use /boot? (Antergos should not boot from [b:2hj6hugd]boot2 [/b:2hj6hugd]but from root!) Do I possibly need no mounting at all and select this only when I modify the booting device at the start up of the machine?
4 - Is is possible ot mount the [b:2hj6hugd]spare[/b:2hj6hugd]-partition so that I can see it in the file system? If yes, how do I have to do it?
