Long time user.

Hi guys.

Been here for almost 4 years but thought it'd be better late than never to introduce myself.

I've been using GNU/Linux at home for over 9 years. Started with Ubuntu, then moved to Linux Mint and now with Debian. :-)

Re: How about a SolydM?

it exists already, it is called LMDE-Mate. Hi SFE. LMDE is no way near as polished as the Solyd distros. The Ubuntu-based Linux Mint releases seem to get far more attention unfortunately. Cool username BTW. ;-) Agree completely. But for me, as a true KDE lover, every distro with another desktop is ...

Re: [Solved] Ok to create swap file within encrypted root partition?

Hi kurotsugi.

What would you declare "large ram"? 8GB+?

That's an interesting point about swap being on the same disk -- though the key words are "uses swap space significantly". Yes, to have a separate drive for swap is nuts.

I always have my swappiness set to 10 (not the default 60).

@Schoelje

Why do I need swap? :idea:

BTW - is the right way to mark a thread solved to just put "[Solved]" in the title? Or is there a better method? :?:

Re: Ok to create swap file within encrypted root partition?

Ah, no, that's not what he meant, I think. He has two partitions: one to boot from that is not encrypted and the root partition that has been encrypted. He found out that he wanted/needed swap but didn't want to create another partition for it and encrypt that. So, he used a swap file for that. Tha...

Hi ilu.

You probably cannot make a swap file within an existing LUKS partition with Gparted though.

[Solved] Ok to create swap file within encrypted root partition?

Hi. I followed a guide this guide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXhcnoVPpHQ) to make a swap file within a VirtualBox install of SolydX. The initial install had /boot (500 MB) and /root (LUKS, 15 GB). All seems fine. I now have a swap file working. Is this method safe/good practice? Does it keep m...

Re: Encrypting home partition only vs root + home together.

You don't need the /boot partition if you aren't going to encrypt the / partition. So, you're left with: / /home (encrypt) /boot/efi (when using UEFI) swap (optional, at least the size of your RAM) If you want to encrypt / as well: / (encrypt) /boot /home (encrypt) /boot/efi (when using UEFI) swap ...

Re: Improved security

I know, but that would mean that any existing partitions would be removed from the disk to create the necessary partitions for an encrypted root partition. If somebody needs an encrypted root partition, he/she should know the consequences and you don't learn that by hitting a single button. It's a ...

Re: Improved security

Raoldkel: What exactly do you mean by an "auto option at installation"? Not all of us want encryption by default! Hi Zill. It is not a default option - just one of a few options. The best thing is to install Ubuntu MATE 15.10 or Xubuntu 15.10 or the like and install to see what I mean. It makes a b...
