To cut a long tedious story short, I have two partitions on an SSD. The much larger one has Ubuntu 10.04, the small one has 12.04. In the past few weeks I've finally been moving away from using 10.04 to 12.04 (I was tardy doing this because on this particular laptop there were a number of problems with 12.04 but I've now worked around these)
At this point I have 12.04 working the way I want, but it's been painful and I'd rather not have to go through it again. However, the 12.04 partition is too small (only about 500MB left and I'm bound to eat into this in the future if the past is a guide) So I've already moved my home directory to the 10.04 partition but I'd like to move /sys too (as this is has by far the largest footprint of what's left)
I understand that /sys is a mount point so I'm wondering if simply making it a link to a directory on the bigger partition is going to work (at all or work reliably)? Do I need to worry about disk mount order?
