Installing Linux 9.2 on a Virtual Box Machine

Red Hat does provide a program called the Red Hat Developer Program, which offers a no-cost subscription for development purposes. This subscription provides access to RHEL and other Red Hat software for development and testing purposes only. It does not include support or entitlements for production use.

When performing custom partitioning during the installation of RHEL 9.2, the specific partitions you need to create may vary depending on your system requirements and preferences. However, here are some common partitions you might consider creating:

Root (/) partition: This partition serves as the root file system and holds the core operating system files. It is typically assigned a significant amount of disk space.
Swap partition: A swap partition is used as virtual memory when the system's physical memory (RAM) is fully utilized. It is recommended to allocate swap space based on your system's RAM size (e.g., 1.5x or 2x the RAM).
/home partition: The /home partition is where the user's home directory and personal files are stored. It can be helpful for separating user data from system files.
/boot partition: A separate /boot partition is optional but can be useful for situations such as encryption or when using specific boot loaders. It stores the kernel and boot-related files.
Other custom partitions: Depending on your specific needs, you may create additional partitions such as /var, /tmp, or /usr. These partitions can help manage disk space allocation and separate certain system directories.
It's essential to carefully plan your partition layout based on your intended usage and requirements. It is recommended to consult official documentation or seek expert advice for detailed guidance on custom partitioning during the RHEL 9.2 installation. Intalling Linux on VM - Storage Configuration
