I have Arch Linux installed on
/boot are both on
/home is on
/dev/sda2 (100GB/ext4). I made a 15GB/ext4
/dev/sda3 partition for Ubuntu. I installed Syslinux as the bootloader.
How do I dual-boot-install Ubuntu onto
/dev/sda3 without installing GRUB, without ruining my Syslinx bootloader and how do I share the home partition
/dev/sda2 between the two OS's?
I learned how to boot into Ubuntu correctly and found out that chainloading is unnecessary.
Here's what I did:
- Wiped Ubuntu off
/dev/sda3and reinstalled it in the same place.
- Made a new directory on
- Copied all of
/dev/sda3to the new directory in step 1 (because the the kernel and initrd files for Ubuntu were there),
/dev/sda1. See below for the entry:
LABEL Ubuntu MENU LABEL Ubuntu LINUX ../ubuntu/vmlinuz-3.5.0-23-generic APPEND root=/dev/sda3 ro INITRD ../ubuntu/initrd.img-3.5.0-23-generic
If I were smart, I would probably have a dedicated boot partition. Oh well, it wasn't part of the original question so I'll just worry about that later.
However, I was hoping that Ubuntu would use
/dev/sda2 as the shared home partition and it didn't :(
Anybody know how to fix the
/home/user folder so it's on
