i want to format my laptop hard drive totally (it is 250 Gb) and then install ubuntu 12.04, openSUSE 12.2 and maybe arch linux, (i do not want to install windows). what is the best partitioning scheme in such a situation?
i know that installing multiple linux distros alongside each other with a shared /home partition lead to creation of these directories: /home/mandriva, /home/Ubuntu and /home/Arch. and inside these directories i will have following folders:
Videos, Musics, dcuments, Desktop, etc.
but i dislike this structure because i do not want to have for example 3 video directory or 3 music directory. i want to have only one video, one music, and one document, ... directory shared between all distros.
if you were me, how do you partitioning you hard?
