I'm planning on installing Arch Linux onto an Asus Chromebook Flip C100P. After enabling developer mode and creating a compatible live USB, I'm ready to start partitioning the device.
Whenever I've done this in the past, I've been used to partitioning the HDD into the boot and user regions of a
/dev/sdx device. In this instance, I'm only able to target memory devices with the prefix
/dev/mmcblkXXXX. The device I'm using uses an SSD, which I expect to be treated no differently in this process (apart from requiring me to enable TRIM support), but I'm a little confused about the device entries (via
mmcblk0boot0 (disk) 4M mmcblk0boot1 (disk) 4M mmcblk0 (disk) 14.7G
I'm unsure whether if I make a fresh Arch installation on
mmcblk0, will the bootloader be able to detect it? What's the purpose of
mmcblk0boot1? Is it possible I'll need to change these too? (Can they be changed at all? I'm under the impression they're distinct physical devices.)
