Bug#142881: Partition scheme, suggestion
In Section 6.4, partitioning is discussed (In CVS version:
1. root partition size
Root partition size of 100MB is old information. New 2.4
precompiled kernels are big due to many modules. If one
want to have back-up version on the disk, requires root partition to be
over 100MB. I suggest bumping number to 200MB and separate this
information in default.ent or somewhere.
2. /usr partition size
For /usr, it can be over 3GB these days with GNOME. Of course
/usr/local is the first thing to be moved away but moving /usr/share
seems to be most effective to keep /usr partition small like 2GB.
3. request to make some short summary
I think <list> description is getting too long on this matter and
including some summary table as follows (please adjust disk size) shall
be quite useful.
--- x8 SNIP START ---
/ == (/ + /boot + /bin + /sbin)
== Minimum 50MB, For 2.4 kernels, spare 200MB
/tmp == Minimum 20MB, Typical 200+MB
/var == Minimum 100MB, Typical 500+MB (Workstation)
== Optional 2GB - 4GB (Mail server, etc.)
/home == Typical 10MB - 100MB, for each user
/usr == Typical 300MB (console terminal only)
== Typical 700MB (minimum X system)
== Minimum 2GB, Typical 4GB (with GNOME and KDE)
(/usr/local == Optional 100MB)
(/usr/share == Optional 2GB, for GNOME and KDE)
--- x8 SNIP END ---
