I am new here.
I am trying to install debian on a VM to test it before i install it on
my laptop. Since its a laptop i would like to encrypt the hard drive. I
would also like to be able to return my whole system to a previous state
or just my home directory.
I would like to ask
1. Whats the appropriate layout?
My current layout is:
LVM VG Laptop-vg LV root 16.9GB Linux device mapper (linear)
#1 16.9GB f btrfs /
LVM VG Laptop-vg LV swap 4.3GB Linux device mapper (linear)
#1 4.3GB f swap swap
Encrypted volume (sda5_crypt)-21.2GB Linux device mapper (crypt)
#1 21.2GB K lvm
SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) 21.2GB ATA QEMU HARDDISK
#1 primary 254.8MB K ext2 /boot
#5 logical 21.2GB K crypto (sda5_crypt)
Should i make a different partition for /home/ ?
2.I will obviously make the / partition btrfs. Do i have to use btrfs
also on my boot partition?
3.Is there any btrfs GUI program to manage my system on debian stretch
or on debian buster? or i can only do this from the command line?
Thanks in advance for your help
