Is it obvious how to do this from the installer or is this something that needs to be done on the CLI?Then with Distros 2 to x, point them in the install process to use Distro 1's Home as their home (but do not reformat or you will lose data generated in Distro
G'day MateIs it obvious how to do this from the installer or is this something that needs to be done on the CLI?
No. Nor does any other Linux Distro that I am familiar with.Does Manjaro require a separate /boot/efi partition for each drive if there is a ssd and an hdd?
Funny how that happened!?!? I like the new picture by the way!(& G'day again . Fancy meeting you here)
That is what I thought. I just ran into a weird situation when I tried to install a 2nd Manjaro. The installer never prompted me to choose the location of the bootloader. At the top of the box (I'm sorry I don't have a screenshot) there is a drop down box that allows for changing the drive and the left of the drop down is a spot that reads "efi" I assumed that I was supposed to choose the drive that has the ESP partition. I did that and both attempts I get an error message that I did not designate a boot partition and the system may not boot properly. What happens is I never get the Grub2 menu and the last distro loaded automatically boots.However the first time it runs is before we get to the choice of manual partitioning, erasing the disk and installing, installing alongside your current OS/OSes &c. So as part of that, Linux already knows where (in a UEFI-GPT environment) your ESP is, that is, /boot/efi .
See aboveDid you pull back from the install of Xfce or pursue it to completion?
That was the odd thing is it never specifically asked me to choose. Now, I am loading 18.0 as opposed to the 17 series. I don't know if that is an issue.If Linux cannot find an ESP, it will prompt you to specify one.
Yeah, that's the sort of prompt I'm talking about. Normally you should be able to "Back" from there and designate if need be.I get an error message that I did not designate a boot partition and the system may not boot properly.

Do Manjaro community additions update on the same schedule as the main editions?BTW if your MATE is up-to-date it will now be a v18 codenamed 'Illyria'. Manjaro works on a Rolling Release model cf a Point Release model such as Ubuntu and Mint &c.
