Hi all,

Just downloading an ISO to do a stage 3 install. I know my HDD is a little small, so can anyone suggest a partitioning scheme that worked for them? I understand that Gentoo needs a big /var.

Thanks,

Chris.

Well, i've gone for /sda1 /, /sda3 /whole disk sun label, /sda4 /swap. Not great partitioning, but should increase my chances of getting it all on the disk.

Gentoo does use alot of space on /usr for compiling and dist files etc etc.

Personally I would have gone for:
Code:

/dev/sda1 - ext3 - /boot - 10MB
/dev/sda2 - ext3 - /     - ~Everthing else.
/dev/sda3 - SUN Whole disk partition
/dev/sda4 - swap ~ 256MB

Toady,

I'm sure I read that a /boot partition on Sun hardware wasn't good. Anyway, without the /boot, I went for exactly what you've suggested.

Many thanks,

Chris.
