You should also create directories for and mount any other partitions

Hi,

I've downloaded archlinux-2012.12.01-dual.iso and wrote it to USB. I've booted from that USB and set up partititons using command cfdisk.

/dev/sda5 ==> /boot
/dev/sda6 ==> /
/dev/sda7 ==> swap
/dev/sda8 ==> /home

I don't remember if I've created /mnt or if it was already there. I've created two directories: /mnt/boot and /mnt/home as per instructions:

"https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_Guide

Mount the partitions
We now must mount the root partition on /mnt. You should also create directories for and mount any other partitions (/mnt/boot, /mnt/home, ...) if you want them to be detected by genfstab."


I've mounted /dev/sda6 on /mnt

and now there are no /mnt/boot and /mnt/home under the /mnt


I don't understand what to do now because instructions state that I should create directories /mnt/boot and /mnt/home and mount them but now that I've mounted / on /mnt the /mnt/boot and /mnt/home are not available to mount partitions /dev/sda6 and /dev/sda8

Re: You should also create directories for and mount any other partitions

You've got things out of order. You mount the root partition first, then make the directories and mount the rest.

Might I suggest using the Beginners Guide instead of the Installation Guide?

Re: You should also create directories for and mount any other partitions

mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
mkdir /mnt/boot
mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/boot

Then do pacstrap etc. Add /home to fstab before you reboot.
Alternatively you can mkdir /mnt/home and mount /sda8 there too, then genfstab will add the entry in fstab for it for you.
