Hi all,

Apologies if this is a general question, but I just wanted to confirm my own thinking is correct.

I plan on installing Gentoo onto a MAC running OSX and my thinking is as following:

/dev/sda1 EFI - Becomes my Bootloader - I will be using refind to load Gentoo kernel.
/dev/sda2 - OSX partition - Leave as is.
/dev/sda3 - OSX recovery partition - leave as is.
/dev/sda4 - Gentoo Root partition.


I won't at this stage create a swap partition, but I have heard this can be done buy creating a swap file instead.

Am I missing something or will the above work?

thanks
Charles

Charles ... yes, that will work, but there is no reason not to create swap as sda5, it will make hibernation a little easier.

best ... khay
