As ryan said its easy. Really don't need to chroot. Anyway. I let Ryan guide you through.
Its not that Ryan, I suppose to leave anytime. I'm on call, got a call now I'm left hanging. -And really frustrated. Sorry I kinda through you to the wolves, so to speak, I got a call but told to wait now I thought u would handle it. It's not as difficult to you and I. For me its harder to teach and communicate as it is for you.
All this is fine but I dont understand sdb1. Is this to share windows and Linux? /tmp is huge but you may need it depending on what db u run and programming I'm not sure the space. Mysql easily can use 100MB I use to specify 100MB just for Mysql and mount it seperate. Xorg will use some but you probably won't notice it. So you have plenty for tmp.Well, it's still not done installing. I swear I will never do netinstall again!!! It's about 3/4 done (from what the red install bar tells me), so it might be a while.
I looked at ryanvade's links, and understand what fstab is. Made sense what the file means. I read the script but don't really understand it.
Now, once it is done installing, I will write out what the partitions are for sda. Right now, sdb is blank. Should I first create 3 partitions (logical or primary?) and then let you know what they are? Then we can proceed?
Wait, sdb is NOT blank. There is sdb1 that is NTFS with 500GB. (primary)
How big should the /tmp partition be? Considering it is cleared when there is a re-boot, probably not very big, right? I don't shut down my laptop very often, only when needed, so I need to plan to have a large enough /tmp partition for a week or so of common use before it gets full.
There is 431GB left on sdb.
should I do these logical or primary?
I figured 225GB for /home
6GB /tmp <<--- is that big enough?
The keyboard posted this I thought I loss it hahaha/tmp probably needs to be a couple hundred MB's for database. or more depending on the data base. MySQL/MariaDB = 100MB anyone correct me if u have a better answer.
Linux will probably use very little but Xorg will use some. Since you have plenty make it 500MB to 1G. --anyone add your recommendations.
Sorry its the keyboard so sensitive half what I write I have to redo.
What partitions are not mounted do you want mounted?It's installed, but I don't know how, by command line utility call to tell you what my settings and I don't see that gparted is installed. Let me install that and I will be back to let you know the settings.
