EFI System Partition mountpoint

Postby kereberos » 2017-05-12 18:25

What is the correct mountpoint for a EFI FAT32 System Partition partition? Should it be /boot or /boot/efi or /foo and then bind-mount it over /boot ?

I read somewhere that it should be /boot/efi (with /boot being placed over the root mountpoint / ) but on this archwiki page i read that it should be /boot (or /anywhere and then bind-mount it over /boot )
What advantages give the differences between all options?

Debian expects the EFI system partition to be mounted to /boot/efi

Arch mounts /boot to the ESP so that systemd-boot can work.

Thanks.
I am sure Debian uses systemd but systemd-boot sounds somewhat different. I had never heard of it before. Is it the archlinux alternative to GRUB?
Also, if i want to encrypt root, should i create an unencrypted mountpoint for /boot too? For example:
Code: Select all
/boot     (ext4)        is this required? how many MB?
/boot/efi (fat32)       this shall be 256MB
/         (LUKS, ext4)
/home     (LUKS, ext4)
/var      (LUKS, ext4)
or can i keep /boot on the encrypted root?

Low quality trolling. lmgtfy.com would have been better for this. but could give a 4/10

And now answer to the questions or GTFO

Don't be silly, I would never link to a site that requires javascript to work :roll:
