It’s just yulistic!


Purpose Let’s make a root(/) partition except /boot directory be btrfs. btrfs supports a copy-on-write functionality. For the reason of excepting /boot partition, the Ubuntu document warns against including Grub into btrfs partition. … As of 11.04, it is possible to use only btrfs file systems with the caveat that grub ‘MUST NOT’ be installed to the boot sector of the btrfs volume containing /boot. (link) As a result, I decided to make the /boot partition be separated from the root(/) partition.

Problem Make a boot partition be separated from the root partition without re-installation. Environment Ubuntu 10.04.04 Live USB (Burned with UNetbootin) Grub legacy Solution Basically refer to link. The site mentions two methods: Easy way and Manual way. Firstly, I tried _Easy way_ but failed because of some problems in a tool, boot-repair. I recommend to follow Manual way and the following explanations are also related to that way.

Intro. I decided to use gollum wiki, because of following reasons. Bitbucket wiki supports poor searching functionality. Gollum gives us a nice view and a convenient navigating functionality. Gollum is easy to install, and light-weight. Gollum supports pure markdown language. I tried to install gollum in two different system: Ubuntu 14.04 and CentOS 6.5. There was no special problem when installing in Ubuntu, but there were in CentOS.
