partition-table: does this one make sense for a fresh install of suselinux 12.3
1 Attachment(s)
hello dear Linux-friends

i currently am preparing the the systemchange (opgrade ) from opensuse version 12.2 to 12.3

all the important thing´s i want to save is

- thunderbird - with enigmail and the corresponding gnupgp passwords and credentials

all the other things( data etx etc) was stored and saved.
But the rearrange and new setup of the above mentioned thunderbird does make me a bit frightened - it was very very tricky process to deal with all those enigmail-things and the setup of kpgp
it took me several weeks.

So - if i had to choose between a fresh (vanilla ) install - on a "nacked" laptop - with no home-partiion or something ohter old stuff - i would prefer this way - (if i were able to quickliy re-build the tbird with enigmail)

if i intend to do such a installation - i should / could rework the old partinion table - or what do you think !? Does this currently used partion make sense !?

How would you arrange the installation.

Note - i do not need any other system on the lappy - years ago - i thougtht that i need some place for another operating system. These times are passed - i only want to stick to openSuse.

So i look forward to your ideas regarding the partition table: Look forward to hear from you

For a simple laptop installation I wouldn't use that many partitions, just go for one swap-partition (if you want to use hibernation that make it the size of your RAM, otherwise 1-2GB should be fine), a /-partition and if you want a separate /home partition.
