Var questions...


I've seen many posts on this var directory and I don't know much about it. I've seen people ask how large they should be and things like that. I'm just not sure what it's used for and what size it should be. Speaking of sizes, Suse 10.0 never prompted me for a size. Any info that can be given is greatly appreciated.

Take a look at this, especially chapter 5.
