1 If its only one app, why not use a small vm (qemu, vbox etc.)? - best of
2 both worlds.
4 Also, why only on Suse? - you can often work around differences with
5 ld-preload and other tricks.

19 Hi all,
20 I usually use Gentoo as my "normal" Linux but a third party app I'm
21 about to start using only runs on SUSE. To this end, I'm about to set
22 aside a smaller partition and install the minimal amnount of SUSE I need
23 to run the app. My question is regarding /home and swap. Is there
24 anything in my current Gentoo /home and swap that "locks" them to the
25 Gentoo install or can I share them between the two installs? What I mean
26 by share is that when I boot up Gentoo can I mount /home and swap and
27 everything is fully accessible and then reboot into SUSE and once again
28 mount them and everything is once again fully accessible?
30 I'm not doing anything "snazzy" such as LVM or encryption, just bog
31 standard Linux. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
33 Regards,
34 Andrew
