Dual Booting Funtoo with CentOS 7 or any other Linux Distros

Question

Hello all 

 

If I want to dual boot Funtoo and lets say CentOS 7 or any other Linux Distro,  will the installation of CentOS or another distro, wipe out the Funtoo GRUB configuration ? how should I go about doing this so that my Funtoo GRUB installation does not get wiped out?

 

Thanks!

I haven't used kvm and also didn't try this myself, but it should be possible to launch a lxd container for your needs on funtoo without booting in something else. Let me know if you are interested (I could help you setting it up), or just install centos in a separate partition, it will probably detect the Funtoo install and replace funtoo's grub with centos, but you should still be able to boot both of them.

I tested now with lxd container.

Centos7 runs ok, qemu-kvm and other packages install fine. virt-install runs, but complains about KVM acceleration not available, using 'qemu'. So it looks like it could be doable in a container inside funtoo.
