[Bug 1077] /usr MAX size is not enough for second CD
------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 2006-03-23 16:36 -------
Thanks for your contributions. I shall commit these contemplations:
I came to the conclusion, that an additional feature to autopartkit -
which should be easy to implement (or just to document) could ease the
struggle for optimal settings:
Now, only $RAMSIZE can be used as variable when calculating sizes.
In my eyes, there should be also be something like $VOLUMESIZE or simply
$MAXSIZE (maybe even $DISKSIZE) to allow consumptive partitions (say,
home) to take up X% of the whole space.
Do you think, this is feasable?
With this, a linear scaling for interpolation could be sensible:
DefineRange: 1G 40G
If Volumesize <= 1G: use Minimum (for all partitions)
If Volumesize >= 40G: use Maximum (for all partitions)
otherwise use t*min+(1-t)*max, where t=(Volumesize-1G)/39G
(this provides a value inbetween given MIN/MAX)
Alternatively, introducing a bivariate min/max function could be a way:
#define MIN(x,y) (((x)<(y))?(x):(y))
(C Preprocessor syntax)
Please feel free to ask about this interpolation formula or anything,
