Hi guys, I need some help with the following: To install Antergos on existing partitioned (LVM on LUKS).
Well, my situation is as follows: currently I have a computer with X GNU/Linux distribution to which I want to replace it with Antergos, its configuration is the following:
- Partition Table: MBR.
- Bootloader: LILO.
- Multiboot: No.
- UEFI: No.
- Disk Partitions: 1 primary (/boot -> ext2), 1 extended (LVM on LUKS).
- Volume group: 1 (crypt).
- Logical volumes: 4 volumes. root (/root → ext4), swap, home (/home → ext4) and backup (/media/backup → ext4).
I want to perform the installation keeping the current disk partitioning. Therefore, I booted the computer through the liveCD. The first thing I did was to access the volumes as follows:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdx2 crypt vgscan --mknodes vgchange -ay
Then I start the graphical installer and in the section Disk Partitioning I have selected the advanced option. Here I indicated relevant options for each logical volume and I continue the installation process. I think everything is going well until this point, right? The remaining part is completely unknown to me, I fully understand that I must make some modifications on mkinitcpio, the boot loader (I must also activate the options related to hibernation of the computer) and stuff like that… I have found the following: dm-crypt/Encrypting an entire system but I do not know if is sufficient or I need something more. So, I would be very grateful if someone could advise me about it.
Thanks in advance!!!
