I am currently running Ubuntu-15.10 on my machine and I am planning to install KaliLinux alongside Ubuntu. I would like to know 2 things before I proceed.
(As both Questions are related and similar, I included both in same question)
- Can I have Only 1 (current) Swap partition for both?
Should I create 2 different swap partitions 1 for each? Or can I use the existing Swap partition as a common Swap?
- Can I use the same
/homePartition for both?
I have an 25GB separate partition for
/home on my Ubuntu. It would be amazing if I could share the same
/home for both the O.S so that changes made in one will be reflected in the other
And I will follow these (if required):
- I will use the Exact same username if both the O.S
- I will create one and only one user in both the O.S
- Permission of
/homewill be set to 777 always
I am aware that During the installation of the 2nd OS, if I tick ☑ on
/home instructing it to use the current partition, It will be formatted once. But will this effect Ubuntu?
