I put my Ubuntu in a 8 GB partition which is fine provided you don't
get a bunch of pictures and other things via the Internet. I was getting
a lot of big things and the partition was getting full fast. I had to do
something and nothing was easy. But it is done and the solution is working.
The bulk of the system is still in the /dev/hda8 directory, but the
/home is now in the /dev/hda9 partition. It is a 20 GB partition and it
is now 22% used. The main 8 GB is now 60% used.
Back when I was using Fedora 7 Linux I first separated the /home and
I have that also attached to my system. This is good because a lot of
things I recall and find in that older file system. If I want it I put
it on the Desktop.
This is what my /etc/fstab looks like now:
karl at karl-desktop:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

LABEL=f7-home /f7home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda9 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
Notice at the bottom both partitions are mounted when I boot up the
system. They come up right after the main system.
Now the computer can just work for awhile and I will add some more
pictures now that space is not a problem.
