I've just purchased a laptop and will install debian onto it. I just
wanted your generous suggestions regarding installation.
I am planning to use the following partition structure:
/boot -- 150mb
/home -- 10GB
/usr -- 15GB
/usr/local -- 5GB
I don't think having /tmp, /var etc on a laptop would be much
beneficial. Also since Debian already has most softwares packaged
/usr/local doesn't need be much big. And since I've a target to become a
DD soon, whatever I install into /usr/local will some time soon go into
I'll be using Maildir format for emails. So no /var tension. /home will
Is there anything else I should be concerned for installation on a
laptop ? Any better suggestion ?
