I have a 2.5G partition that I just installed Xubuntu on from the
Xubuntu ISO. The current output of df:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 2403452 1115744 1165616 49% /
varrun (I'm typing this in on my laptop while looking at
varlock the other screen, so I will skip some of the details
udev let me know if you need better info on these)
/dev/hda2 50394996 131360 47703680 1% /home
/dev/hda1 191980 2074 189906 2% /media/hda1
As you can see, I have a 50 G drive for /home. Combining /home and /, I
have just a little over 1.2 G used by the default install.
The current contents of /var/cache/apt/archives is a little over 47MB,
so not a lot to be gotten back there. Overall, my opinion is that it's
a very impressive install. Personally I'm just tickled that I can use
this old Pentium MMX at all. It's actually working pretty well, and
GNU/Linux recognizes the really big drive that I put in just fine, even
though I had to set a jumper on it for 32 GB reporting so the BIOS
wouldn't freak out.
I'm planning on setting up several server features on the box, mainly
for grins. I'll set it up with NFS, a print server, and ssh for
