franznietzsche said:Getting ready to install, but i want to know how the rest of you have your partitions setup.
Also, what is the purpose of the swap file?
I need a / directory for the OS, obviously, /home or /usr for working in, graphic7 suggested a /boot, i'm assuming a backup of the / directory. Anything else?
Also what sizes are your directories respectively?
/usr should be the largest partition, next to /. /home should be whatever you think you need. /boot stores the bootloader configurations, as well as the kernel, itself (therefore, it shouldn't require hardly any space).
Given I had a 20gb for Fedora I would:
3gb - /home
10gb - /usr
6.5gb - /
