Counting the portage tree and distfiles, how big is it? Mine is in the 12-15GB range. I like to install cool stuff for school even if I only use it once or twice a month, so mine is usually around 12-15GB.

800 megs (on-disk), including gnome, inkscape, gimp, blender, regular x11 and glibc, anjuta, bluefish, e17, openbox, firefox and mozilla (kinda redundant, really), speechd, festival + hmm voices, gaim and some other stuff i can't remember... i think some office but i don't use it...

though, admittedly, the box's image doesn't include the portage tree and distfiles and i squeezed it into a squashfs... uncompressed it's around 2.5 gigs

my box at home is ~ 4 gigs tho

This is a great thread for me, because soon I will decide how much disk space to assign my linux partition to on my laptop.

8.8 GBs. I really can't figure out why I'm using so much disk space. Seems like a lot to me.

8GB. Biggest dir is /opt, probably because of Quake/Doom/RTCW PAK files.

I cleaned out /usr/portage/distfiles so now it's down to 7.5. I do have a full GNOME install which I plan on getting rid of in favor of enlightenent and blackbox fulltime. (I had it on there in case other people use my compuiter but I have no life and no one else uses my computer)

I got one of those when I upgraded due to PSU failure and I'm really liking it.

Mine's only 7.6 gigs. I'm really surprised, I thought it was alot more than that. This makes me realize how much crap I got. (partition is just about 100 gigs full) Most of it is anime. :-P

shm                   252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm


so for gentoo thats a total of about 3.5G's

i run kde with goodies, and i use programs like nicotine, kile(tetex is prety big), matlab (installed in /home/matlab) and i recently installed all of sun-jdk and sun-j2ee in the hopes of getting sun studio 11 installed -- so far no luck. i run lots of lightwiehgt programs like pygmy for music, pine for mail, irssi for irc. i also have fluxbox, ion3, wmii installed for fun. i just installed lighttpd, but it sucks, so its going out the door.

all in all a prety streamline install, most of /usr is libs (i try many languages).

It would have made more sense to add more choices, one range of sizes with additional tag "servers" and one range of sizes with the tag "workstation".

Server:


Code:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md/1             1.9G   58M  1.7G   4% /
udev                  486M  192K  486M   1% /dev
/dev/mapper/vg-usr    4.0G  1.3G  2.6G  33% /usr
/dev/mapper/vg-portage
                      2.0G  682M  1.4G  34% /usr/portage
/dev/mapper/vg-var    7.9G  821M  6.7G  11% /var
/dev/mapper/vg-tmp    2.0G   33M  2.0G   2% /tmp
/dev/mapper/vg-opt   1008M  100M  858M  11% /opt
/dev/mapper/vg-home   2.0G  1.2G  701M  64% /home
shm                   486M     0  486M   0% /dev/shm



Workstation:

Code:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md/1             1.9G  104M  1.8G   6% /
udev                  505M  196K  504M   1% /dev

Hi,

~18GB, with the distfiles (I usually don't remove them, until they are really outdated) and with some gigs used up by ut2004.
