    Unnecessary var, tmp, and usr Partitions.

    Hi all,

    I have been reading the progress of the following thread with interest.

    I am in the situation whereby after reading some of the available documentation, I inadvertently created my 12.04.1 installation with var, tmp, and usr partitions thinking I was doing the right thing. Everything is working fine, however I have been toying with the idea of starting again. Things to be considered -

    Is it really worthwhile to change it now it has been done this way ?
    I fear that I may mess up the process of changing the partitions either by Gparted of with the Partitioning tool. I assume Gparted would be the logical choice - If I chose that option would have any problems with the procedure - What would I actually do ?

    At the EOL of Xubuntu 12.04 I may have to make a decision to change things around however at the moment I am really tempted to leave it as it is, but I am open to any suggestions.

    Edit: Does it matter that I have / before /boot ?

    Cheers and thanks -
