I'm trying to figure out a decent partitioning layout for a workstation. The system has an ~80GB disk. After /, /var, /tmp and swap, I have 70GB left. I'm wondering how to split these between /usr and /home. Ironically, it is more space than I seem to need. The box has only one user (me), I do not have a fast enough connection to download large amounts audio or video files. I plan to run the KDE3 desktop environment with most of its applications (this is still well under 1.5GB), assorted other software, Wine, two or three Windows apps if they'll run.
I'm torn between various options here, and would appreciate your input: 35GB for each, /usr and /home 25GB for /home and 45GB for /home 70GB for both together (no /home partition) Or something completely different? I'd like this to be "spacey" enough so that I won't run out of room at some point in the future, but 35GB for /usr seems unrealistically much (there won't be mail on this system, it's fed by an IMAP server on a different machine). Then again, 35GB for /home seems just as unrealistically much. Backup matters aside, is there a significant advantage of having a separate /home partition at all? If not, just skipping /home and using 70GB for /usr (including /usr/home) might be the most practical and flexible approach? Thanks. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
