make a filesystem on the extra partition (mkfs.ext4) enter resuce or emergency mode (systemctl rescue) so that the least services run
mount the new partition to /mnt move everything from /var to /mnt unmount /mnt edit the /etc/fstab

I'm doing a clean install of Arch on a new computer, and during the install I'd already set aside 2GiB for the /var partition.
Except I forgot to add it to fstab before I exited chroot, and booted into Arch and installed a DE etc. Now two days later I realize that Arch has already created a /var directory on the / partition. How do I migrate /var into the partition I'd originally created for it?
Is it as simple as adding a line to fstab and rebooting?
