ginaspider @ 12:29 pm: So I'm installing 4.7 I usually have / and /home on separate partitions. / is 10gb but it seems a little much. For those of you who have / and /home separated how much space do you have partitioned for /?

20G for root, 3G free atm

/ 1GB
/usr 8GB
/tmp 1GB
/var 50% of remaining
/home the rest

10gb for root isn't too much for root if you don't split up the slices.

I have /usr at 8 which is enough to do two full tree builds plus source.
What are using the system for? Knowing that helps give advice.

ok, thank you. Just personal use- I mostly just use the build tools and firefox.

Thanks mate. Since I just have / and /home I think I'll go with 4gb and have the rest in /home.
