Recommend partitioning method

Postby sKi » 2020-04-06 12:09

Hi!

I want to install Debian 10 (KDE) UEFI mode no dual system. I have SSD (128GB)+HDD (3TB)+8GB DDR3 ram . Please recommend partitioning method.
I was thinking root + swap file = SSD home partition + data = HDD
How do you think about it or maybe completely wrong this idea :)

Thanks in advance

Home partition on SSD. It contains frequently accessed user data and config files.

In some threads here learnt, if you have a large amount of data in your /home, make symlinks to /home and actual data to other partition/disk.

Have not done that myself, probably in next install.

you can make a scheme as /boot/efi 150 mb , /boot 350 mb /root (20% of disk) /home (60%) /usr/local (rest of disk)

1) The root is /, not /root. /root is the superuser home directory.
2) What makes you believe that the OP needs separate /boot and /usr/local ?
