Fucking sub 4 gb of ram scum.

>>52507768
if using mbr:
1TB rootfs /
if using efi:
64 mb /boot
rest is rootfs /
>>
0 to 2 GB swap
2GiB to 100% root
>>
>>52507768
100MB boot
40GB root
250GB home
no swap

Depends: hdd or ssd ?

SSD: I would recommend using some ramdisk (tmpfs) for /tmp and /var (/var/log <- depends if you need the log files after reboot.)
I would also avoid swap on an SSD. Just buy plenty of ram.

cheers

Try again, I'm on a laptop.

I used to use elaborate schemes but nowadays I just use a single partition with swap. I'm not running a fucking server.
>>
no thank you data harvester
>>
>>52507768
This is not yet the case, I want to try it someday though:

One btrfs partition, /OS /boot /home subvolumes, "OS" mounted on /.
One swap partition equal in size to physical ram.

This way I wouldn't have to worry about running out of space on separate volumes.
>>
>>52508365
Why? What happens when you use your 4gb of ram? When i overflow my 2gb of ram, my 8gb swap gives me a nice buffer to shut a couple programs without straught up crashing my computer
>>
All these fags without a home partition
>/dev/sda1 swap
>/dev/sda2 ext4 /
>/dev/sda3 ext4 /home
>>
>>52507768
Entire drive to rootfs, swap to a file
>>
>>52507768
6 GiB of swap and the rest is one large partiton for everything.
>>
>>52507768
>/boot 250MB
>/ 120GB
>/home 500GB

fun fact, moving my /boot from the SSD to the HDD made my boot time increase by 1s

Separate home partition is only useful if you need it encrypted. And who in their right mind needs more than 512mb of swap, even on a goddamn netbook.

Also who ZFS here?

Shame the only way to access it through Windows is through a convoluted VM setup or through another machine

Although ZFS without ECC is asking for trouble

Actually other filesystems would need it much more than ZFS does.

ZFS's corruption prevention needs ECC; not using ECC is worse than not using ZFS
> TL;DR version of the scenario: ZFS is on a system with non-ECC RAM that has a stuck bit, its user initiates a scrub, and as a result of in-memory corruption good blocks fail checksum tests and are overwritten with corrupt data, thus instantly murdering an entire pool. As far as I can tell, this idea originates with a very prolific user on the FreeNAS forums named Cyberjock, and he lays it out in this thread here. It’s a scary idea – what if the very thing that’s supposed to keep your system safe kills it? A scrub gone mad! Nooooooo!

One partition with a swap file on it.
>>
>>52511366
If you read that same article a little further you'd notice he debunks the idea completely. It only corrupts the data of a block in a rare specific scenario, and to have a scrub-of-death requires it to consistently happen for all blocks. Which is simply not how ram works.
The most that will happen is zfs logging an error about an unreadable block because it cannot verify checksums. A lot of unreadable, but not corrupted blocks. Fix the ram and you're good to go again.

rest root because I'm not fucking autistic and my machine has 8 GB of RAM and runs fucking Linux so why the fuck would I compile swap support into my kernel in the first place?
