1 Hello list,
3 In my search for a suitable boot method, I'm trying Mike G's systemd-boot
4 ebuild. I've installed it with no problem, and now I reach the heart-in-
5 mouth stage of actually replacing gummiboot with it. But first, the backup,
6 including dd of what used to be called the MBR (what is it now?).
8 # parted -l
9 Model: Unknown (unknown)
10 Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 256GB
11 Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
12 Partition Table: gpt
13 Disk Flags:
15 Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
16 1 1049kB 3146kB 2097kB uefi bios_grub
17 2 3146kB 144MB 141MB fat32 boot boot, esp
18 3 144MB 4504MB 4360MB linux-swap(v1) swap
19 4 4504MB 15.0GB 10.5GB ext4 rescuesys
20 5 15.0GB 32.2GB 17.2GB ext4 gentoo
21 6 32.2GB 36.5GB 4295MB ext4 var
22 7 36.5GB 45.1GB 8590MB ext4 home
23 [...]
25 That start block of the uefi partition looks odd to me. I'm pretty sure I
26 didn't specify a start position to parted when I was constructing the
27 partition layout six months ago, preferring to let the program choose a
28 value itself. I do remember, though, that parted had a strange idea of what
29 2MB meant: it's turned out to be 2097kB.
31 My question for the panel is whether I need to do anything about that
32 partition layout. What do you think?
