Any RECOMMENDATIONS for partition size?
I have an hdb of 8GB on which I want to install linux; 256MB RAM.
I am a budding developer & shall be doing a lot of data analysis (I'm into bioinformatics), programming, working with databases, compiling, CD/DVD burning, DVD movie editing etc. For all this I think I'll need a seperate TMP partition - Right??
I intend to have large amounts of personal files plus some new program compiling/installing like MySQL, Oracle etc.
I will be installing SimplyMEPIS 3.3 which is desktop-oriented & lacks many devel packages.
My current setup:
/ - more than 3GB (Root)
/home - more than 3GB (HOME)
/boot - 50MB (Boot)
/tmp -???? (TEMP)
Could someone please put in their recommended EXACT values for the size of partitions (other than boot of course)?
Thanks a lot.
