Im still pretty much a newb and need some feedback on partition sizes. I have done quite a bit of reading about them, however in todays age of large hard disks I need some feedback on my situation.
I would post this is the newb section, however since this system will be Mandriva I figured I would get better feedback here.
I will be installing Mandriva 10.2 on this system that was assembled from some older hardware:
1Ghz Pentium III
3.2GB and 3.1GB hard drives
The system will mainly be used as a web server, but of course I will also be using it to continue learning the Linux OS and will be adding packages of interest. I do plan to use KDE and/or Gnome
With a total hard disk size of 6.2GB I have come up with this partitioning scenario:
The only problem I am having is knowing if these partition sizes will be adequate for the needs of the system, especially the root / @ 500MB as it will be hosting the remainder of the file system that has not been allocated to its own partitions.
