Re: Partitioning advice, 13.9 GB HD
On some suse installs, I couldn't get the install to work because it said that
ReiserFS, which I use for all partitions, needed more space. It accepted
smaller sizes for ext2 and ext3, but I prefer ReiserFS. Don't remember how
much it required, but my other boxes are set all above 100 MB, and I'm not
worried about 30-40 extra MB, I'm worried about wasting space with 1 and 2 GB
My friend has just emailed back saying that Debian doesn't use opt at all,
that's a quirk of suse, so I'm changing the setup to add more to var, where
he says the deb files go (var/cache/apt/archives), so I'm looking at this:
/ 2 GB
/boot 140 MB
/tmp 1 GB
/usr 2 GB
/var 2.76 GB
/home 5 GB/balance
swap 500 MB
Should swap be larger with 128 MB Ram, dealing with 700 MB+ iso images (my
burner is on this box). Did I make opt too small?
