I'm trying to install Gentoo on LUKS partition (simple layout - single root partition, without underlying LVM).
Right now it works, but I doubt if I done it properly. I've got such a partitions:
First of all SSD - sda
/dev/sda3- LUKS (
/dev/sda4- future Windows
There is also HDD - sdb, which will be probably LUKS mounted as
First of all - do I need /dev/sda2? Is it necessary, to have an unencrypted boot, if I'm booting from UEFI?
Secondly. Is is possible to decrypt
/dev/sdb2 with the same passphrase as
/dev/sda3 without writing it twice?
And thirdly - does this layout make any sense on a SSD/HDD tandem?
