A question for the community: have any of you been able to successfully install PureOS with a separate /home partition?
what I’m going for is:
- unencrypted /boot partition (sda1) for grub
- encrypted root partition (sda2) with encrypted LVM containing the following volumes:
With the most recent ISO, I have tried:
within installer: manually partitioning the drive, setting appropriate flags and mount points (/, /boot, /home, swap)
- fails with error about being unable to find a target of some sort
in terminal: shredding the drive, then partitioning root (/dev/sda2) and boot (/dev/sda1), setting boot flag, creating physical volume within root (there is no way to create a PV within the installer that I can find); within installer: setting up encryption and volumes
- fails due to being unable to access LUKS volume (installer closes the encrypted volume even though I open it before beginning with the installer)
in terminal: shredding the drive, partitioning boot and root, setting up encryption, setting up LVM, and formatting LV’s, setting up swap; within installer: manually selecting the appropriate partition and LVM for things
- fails due to being unable to access LUKS volume, same as above
Am I missing something, or is it really broken?
