Hi Ppl

I generally make a 100mb /boot, a 10 Gb /, and a big enough ( sort of the rest of my disk ) /home...

I generally use a Swap with 1/4 of RAM, since I currently run a 8GB box, it ammounts to 2Gb...
Even with 8GB some things can grow real big... YADE package for instance ( Discrete elements method )


This way, should I decide to wipe my whole OS, and upgrade , or install something different... sort of changing Slackware for Arch, all my work is safe...

BRGDS

Alex

AFAIK... the BSD's partitioning scheme is the most flexible, when we talk about upgrading a system without breaking anything...

Unless its one of the expensive SSD that are made to replace a hard drive. But I still agree that it is a good idea to keep the random read and writes under check, thus why you mount the file system with noatime and also remove swap. I currently run with no swap partitions and /dev/shm and /tmp in tmpfs, I also keep logs under check as well.
