Re: What is the consensus on the best partition scheme and size?/Keeping home separate
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
I want to install FC6 on my laptop. When I install I usually do a
complete new install instead of an update. For example when going from
FC4 to FC5, I did a new install. how can I partition my hd so that I
can keep /home and not overwrite it? Do I make it a separate
partition? What is the consensus on the best partition scheme and size?
I like to use just 2 partitions: one for '/', typically 10G or so, and
one for '/home' for the rest of the disk (plus the swap partition of
course). That way you can reinstall without touching /home, though be
sure to backup your /etc directory and/or any emails in /var/spool.
