I'm relatively new to linux and I'm trying to build an Arch linux that will have a gaming VM. I have 2 disks: a 500GB SSD and a 2TB HDD. I've settled on a LVM with a swapfile and extra space for snapshots. I don't intend to use the base linux and only use VMs for both personal and business ends. I'm trying to figure out the best way to partition and organize the disks. In order to do that I have a few questions:
- Given the specifications, how would you go about doing that?
- Can I install Arch on the HDD but put the VMs on the SSD?
- Can I have the swapfile on the SSD but the system on the HDD?
- Can I have both the SSD and the HDD on the same volume group?
Ultimately I would like to know what's the most optimized way to do what I described.
