as I'm getting more into linux, I'd like to make a few changes to my setup which seem pretty advanced to me.
But first of all let me explain my setup so you know with what you are dealing with.
This is a Lenovo T430s with a 500GB HDD and an additional 128GB mSATA crucial M4 SSD. I'm currently running Fedora 19 and I chose to encrypt the whole SSD during the inital setup of Fedora. Fedora used 60GB as luks encrypted /home partition which isn't that much after a while.
If I use a lsblk right now, it looks like this:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 465,8G 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 465,8G 0 part /mnt/newhome sdb 8:16 0 119,2G 0 disk ├─sdb1 8:17 0 200M 0 part /boot/efi ├─sdb2 8:18 0 500M 0 part /boot └─sdb3 8:19 0 118,6G 0 part └─luks-32ead9fa-03af-46a6-9503-a9426ab00d86 253:0 0 118,6G 0 crypt ├─fedora_klinkpad-swap 253:1 0 7,8G 0 lvm [SWAP] ├─fedora_klinkpad-root 253:2 0 50G 0 lvm / └─fedora_klinkpad-home 253:3 0 60,8G 0 lvm /home sr0
So I'd like to move the /home partition from /dev/sdb3 to /dev/sda1. That is pretty easy. The rather hard part is that I'd also like to encrypt the HDD as well so that it is getting decrypted together with my SSD during the boot process and correctly mounted as my new /home (I'm guessing fstab is my friend in here). In Addition to that, I'd like to enlarge the root luks encrypted partition by the now freed up 60 GB of my old /home folder as I don't need that anymore.
My questions for you are if this is possible at all, and if it is, how would be the best way to approach this?
Many Thanks in advance!
