@keefaz: Thanks for the reply. Didn't know that info was there.
With that size, I might just do it. I was getting worried when I saw my own /
Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 15G 11G 4.0G 72% /
Now I don't have everything, (No kde, for instance) but I do have multilib (which I would need on this thing if it's 64 bit)
The sums I was doing were
swap ~2G minimum
home Approx 1G per language; 1 user per language each with 500Megs library package, wine files, firefox cache & some utility.
Now stick on English, Chinese, Romanian, Portugese . . . it suddenly gets a little crowded and unhealthy on a little 19G disk.
What irritates me is that, amidst a load of other junk, I recently shredded and slung good ide disks because 'nobody wants these now.' :-//.
EDIT: I'll go off and try it if it's 32 bit. If Multilib adds much, I'll have to think.
