optimum space for different partions..

Post by bhupindermi.. » Thu, 28 Oct 1999 04:00:00

hi guys..
        i want to install RH 6.0 on a 9GB disk.it will be used for imaging (lot
of data).insted of putting  every thing in one partion

( i.e /) i want to make different partions like / , /usr, /var,
/usr/local ( just of the system area ).there will be a lot of programs
from thirg parties which i think goes into /usr/local. this is to
prevent different directories to filling  the file system..
could any unix guru, suggest some optimum values for system directoried.

        i remember in solaris instalation ,u are incouraged to make different
slices of the HDD.
Any no of suggetions are welcome..
thanks in advance..

What does fdisk or cfdisk say about the partition table layout?

The amount of mounted usable space will vary depending on how the
filesystems are initialized, since the filesystem overhead will vary.
