What is your partition layout and filesystem used


Hi

I currently use four partitions:
/boot is ext3
/ is ext4
swap
/home is ext4

Using tmpfs for /tmp and /var/log/ because I am using a SSD drive for the OS and a HDD for the /home partition.

cheers

Code:
/dev/sda1              ext4    20G   18G  721M  97% /
/dev/sda3              ext4   886G   79G  762G  10% /home
tmpfs                  tmpfs  7.9G  4.0K  7.9G   1% /dev/shm
easy-peasy, mac-n-cheesy.

Thanks Habitual and Jeebizz for your replies. Since both of you used the df command, I will do the same.
Code:
df -Th
Filesystem     Type   Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5      ext4    27G  6.4G   20G  25% /

/dev/sdb7      ext4   274G  210G   64G  77% /home
tmpfs          tmpfs  3.9G  335M  3.6G   9% /tmp
tmpfs          tmpfs  3.9G  360K  3.9G   1% /var/log

On the desktop,
/ is 10GM, ext3
/home is 19GB, ext3
swap is 1GB
/media/guest is 8GB: used for testing distros, so it's sometimes ext3, sometimes ext4

I'm surprised that more people don't choose to keep /home separate...

I just added up my non-home directories on my Debian box and it came to just under 15GB. This is the only box on which I have both KDE and Gnome installed and also one which does not have a separate /home partition.

On my primary computer, which has a 15 GB everything-but-home partition and lots of applications installed, df gives me this:

Code:
/dev/sda3       19097236  13692280   4411820  76% /
Note that on this computer the only GUI environments installed are the six Slackware defaults and E17.

Code:
/dev/sda1  Debian                    /        (ext3) and GRUB
/dev/sda2  Extended
/dev/sda5  Shared swap
/dev/sda6  Data partition mounted in /mnt/... (ext3)
/dev/sda7  Shared                    /home/   (ext3)
/dev/sda8  Slackware                 /        (ext3) and LILO
Although /home/ (which is very small since all data is on the data partition) is shared between Debian and Slackware, the user names are different so the actual user directories and configuration files are not shared. GRUB chainloads LILO.

Not so long ago I always had a separate /home, but nowadays I see no need for that. My config files are backed up and synced between my machines regularly anyways and since I have several computers it just makes more sense to have a separate data partition on my main machine that is exported via NFS to my network.

Yes, I guess if you're syncing it elsewhere then it's not an issue. One day I'll get around to setting up a small file/print server at home!
