On my still workhorse system LM 17.3 KDE I am very happy with the partitions I have. The following shows the shortend content of /etc/fstab
Code: Select all
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=5db9f2c0-fc9b-4e37-aace-bfdb65659f74 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /home was on /dev/sda3 during installation UUID=aee3f490-1384-456a-9be6-f0b938af32c1 /home ext4 defaults 0 2 # swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation UUID=b0a85b03-88de-4439-a60b-3fdb779d5d25 none swap sw 0 0
I don't want to install anything else on this PC.
This is what I consider as my partition pattern:
Root: 30GB | mounting point: "/" | format: EXT4 | type: Primary
Swap: 4GB (2x RAM) | use as swap area | type: Logical
Home: rest of the HDD | mounting point : /home | format: EXT4 | type Primary
Especially about the type of the /home partition I am not sure.
I highly appreciate your helping comments!
