    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    Let's see:
    There are 6 disks in this computer, a total of 11 partitons - 3 for linux and two disks splitted in half.

    250gb xp disk, one partition
    320gb ubuntu disk, three partitions
    250gb media disk, two partitions
    250gb media disk, two partitions.
    200 gb disk, right now empty.
    160 gb disk also empty. Usually I use these two for testing distros etc.

    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    I have 3 partitions:
    ext3 - Root
    swap - Swap
    NTFS - Windows XP

    I don't need any more, i.e. for home.

    Just three in this machine. 10 GB for /, 235 GB for /home, and 1 GB for swap. There's an external 80 GB disk that I use for backup purposes, but it is not always connected.

    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    I currently have four on my 40 GB hardrive

    5GB /
    1GB swap
    7GB /home
    and the rest is used as a place to store my media files.

    Thinking of changing the scheme as kernel compiling sometimes of fills up /. However, I rarely use more than 2GB mark for /.

    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    Tried the separate /home partition thing, regretted it when I ran out of space on root. Running out of space when there is still space left is stupid. So now I only have two, swap plus root and restore the last backup of personal data after a reinstallation, which only happens when I switch distro.
