Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

Alrighty, I believe my setup is just about complete! I went through the guide I posted earlier, with Mattyboy's suggested command lines for Mint and went ahead and created a 24 GB swap partition on the HDD and successfully moved /home over to the HDD as well. I backed up, checked and then rechecked ...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

Thank you once again guys! For the amount of RAM and the large amount of storage space that I have and can spare, I guess I can just go ahead and throw in a 24 GB /swap partition (So 1.5x as Michael Louwe suggests) and call it good. I plan on using RAM heavy things on it anyway, I have the storage t...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

I really do appreciate the suggestions! Another question: With the basic install, as in the "Erase Disk and Install Linux Mint" option, everything is automatically set up and running partitioning needed, correct? Before posting, everything was running fine when I did that. From there, I can simply r...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

If the EFI System Partition is formatted in ext4, Windows cannot be booted since Windows cannot read Linux ext4 file-system = no more UEFI standard. But should FAT32 be used even if I'm not using Windows at all on the computer using Linux? Or because of the UEFI BIOS from the mother board? This is ...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

Wow, thanks for all of the replies! I don't think I've ever been in a forum that is so alive! Anyway... @Lazarus: How big is the SSD? I assume LM is already installed there? Is the 2TB HDD already formatted or otherwise in use? I forgot to mention, the SSD is 120 GB and LM is already installed. The ...

[SOLVED] Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

Hello! I've just tried installing Mint this weekend and have hit a road block. I've never used any Linux before FYI. Is it possible to have the OS installed and booted from the SSD and have all the rest of the software, programs, documents, pictures, music, etc, ran from and stored to another HDD? A...

Hello! Another Newbie Here!

Hello! I am completely new to the whole Linux scene, I've been using Windows since I was a kid. Operating/building computers are just one of my many hobbies. Recently, I've grown curious about Linux and did extensive research on which distro looks the friendliest and I obviously settled for Mint. It...
