One month ago I dual booted and gave my root partition around 25GB following guidelines such as this one (there were more), setting a bigger space aside for my home partition. I now tried to install matlab with all its complements in the suggested directory in /usr/local but run out of space. I looked online and matlab with the whole complements takes about 20GB so that may make sense.
What did I do wrong?
- Should have put more space for the root partition, guidelines were wrong
- The recommended size made sense, Matlab+all packages is just unexpectedly big.
- I should not install some programs in /usr/local, but somewhere else.
- Something else
In any case, what's the best way to proceed? I currently have installed matlab+complements in home, where I have plenty of space (but in Hard Disk, not SSD).
