I'd like to know how to create aligned partitions on a 160GB disk
which uses a 512B sector size.
(Partition table: msdos)
I've got the theory [1, 2], but I can't make it work.
I'd like to have three partitions:
1. ext3 ~ 100mb /boot
2. linux-swap ~ 1GB swap
3. ext3 (for the rest of the system)
How to adjust the sizes?
I'm planning to encrypt swap and the third partition with dm-crypt (not LUKS).
Separate /boot is needed to mount and decrypt them after booting.
What do you use on your YeeLoongs?
Could you suggest a better scheme?
What about file system type (i.e. ext3)? Should I change it to something else?
