I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat. And my root partition is too small to hold those two on /. Can anyone make a suggestion on how to do this:
""" create a new partition for a large moveable directory like home, var or usr. Then I rsync the directory onto the new partition and mount it. """
There was a similar subject opened on How do I change Software Center's default installation path?, but as i am pretty new to ubuntu i am struggling to reach a solution.
I want to move /usr and /var on the same partition with /home, but i don't want to make separate partitions for each one of them. For moving /home i used this solution: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving#Different_filesystems_on_the_same_disk I think i need a labeling in my fstab, can anyone tell me if this is a good idea, or give a better one?
