Re: Partition placement in dual drive instalation
I put /tmp on ramdisk by adding the following line to /etc/fstab:
Firefox puts its cache in your home partition. By moving this cache in RAM you can speed up Firefox and reduce disk writes.
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0
Mount /tmp in RAM, and you can put the cache there as well.
Open about:config in Firefox. Right click in an open area and create a new string value
called "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory". Set the value to /tmp.
And I would put /home and swap on the fastest drive.
