I am running a dual boot system with windows vista and ubuntu 10.04. Yesterday, I decided to re-install vista, but after that I wasn't able to boot in ubuntu, so I want to take the chance to upgrade to 12.04, and rearrange my HDD's partitions.
My plan is to split my 250 GB HDD as follows
- 120 GB Vista
- 50-60 GB NTFS storage partition, that will be used both in vista and ubuntu
- 60-70 GB ubuntu
I've decided to use 4GB swap(equal to my RAM), but I don't know how much space to give on
I suppose that in root directory
/, all the programs are installed.
In ubuntu I use CERN's root, maybe a bit of LaTeX, I watch movies, browsing, pdf reading and stuff like that.
So, how to arrange root directory and /home?
If I need more
/ space in future for program installation, will I be able to increase it?
In addition, is there a way to create a root account while installing ubuntu?
