Yes, you should not put /boot in a separate filesystem. It should be in root. You have a lot for stuff like /usr, but really, how much you need in any file system depends on how you will use it. Try it and gain some experience with the setup and go from there. You can change it the next time you do a major upgrade. ////jerry > ... > > > > /tmp 2GB > > Fine > > OK. > > > > /swap 16GB Machine has 8GB RAM, so swap = 2X RAM > > A bit of overkill, but what the hell, you have the space > > I've had 2X RAM drummed into me for ages.
