I set up my manjaro installation using the full drive with LUKS encryption. I’d like to set up a separate, smaller partition now, with a clean install of manjaro on it. It doesn’t matter to me whether this partition is LUKS encrypted or not. I’m actually just going to use it for a software build tutorial – and I’d rather do this than use a virtual machine. I am however getting warnings when I run
sudo fdisk -l, that I want to address before continuing.
sudo fdisk -l:

sudo fdisk -l:
Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.38.1). Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them. Be careful before using the write command. This disk is currently in use - repartitioning is probably a bad idea. It's recommended to umount all file systems, and swapoff all swap partitions on this disk. The device contains 'crypto_LUKS' signature and it will be removed by a write command. See fdisk(8) man page and --wipe option for more details. Device does not contain a recognized partition table. Created a new DOS disklabel with disk identifier 0x035894c8. Command (m for help):
So what would be the proper way to go about creating a new partition with this setup?
