I'm following the Gentoo Handbook to partition the disk.
root # mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda2
root # mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda4
root # mkswap /dev/sda3
root # swapon /dev/sda3
It doesn't specify a filesystem for sda1. Which one should I use?
Also, in a previous section the guide said:
The ESP must be a FAT variant (sometimes shown as vfat on Linux systems). The official UEFI specification denotes FAT12, 16, or 32 filesystems will be recognized by the UEFI firmware, although FAT32 is recommended for the ESP. Proceed in formatting the ESP as FAT32:
root # mkfs.fat -F 32 /dev/sda2
The ESP is located in the sda2, but the guide also says to use ext2 on sda2.
Which is the correct filesystem?
