Partitioning Planning Help
I'm waiting to get my new hard drive before I fully go to Mythbuntu, but I'm trying to plan as much as possible beforehand to make transitioning easier. My disk space will be:
15GB Internal Drive
160GB Internal Drive
500GB External Drive
On the small 15GB drive, WinXP has been there for a while. I plan on keeping it there - I only boot it once or twice a year, and it's small enough to not be a bother.
But how should I split up the other two drives? I need space not only for recordings, but also for normal video / music / pictures / etc. It will be a backend/frontend/normal desktop set up. I was thinking about having a 20-ish GB root partition (ext3) and /home for the rest (probably xfs?). I would just have ~/Videos, ~/Recordings, ~/Music, etc. within my home directory.
It looks like, with LVM, I can have one partition span my 160 and 500 drives. Is that right? If so, could I do this:
First 20GB of 160GB Internal drive is /. 140GB + 500GB = 640GB for /home.
Am I missing something? Would that work?
