/tmp Size

Recommended Posts

Here is what I have to work with.

 

3 partitions for slackware

 

hda1 = windows (32Gb)

hda2 = linux swap (512Mb)

hda3 = linux /tmp (???)

had4 = linux / (???)

 

now my question is how much should tmp be?

 

Also - how much space does longhorn take up and can it be installed onto fat32 partitions?

Moving files from Linux to WIndows is easy. I do it multiple times a day at home, and at work. Using NTFS, FAT32, EXT2, and EXT3... all you need is Samba.

 

samba.org

 

Swap drive should be at least the same size as your ram.

You don't install samba on windows.

 

Samba allows a Linux (or Unix) system to be seen in a windows network. Just browse from my network places inside of windows, and you'll see the linux system if samba is properly configured.

You can directly access ext2 and 3 partitions from windows using ext reader.

 

Samba is great, I have it running. You could install NFS and download the UNIX extensions for windows but samba is a lot easier to setup.

 

I usually create one partition and put / and tmp on it. If you want it on a seperate partition I would say maybe 200-300MB.

 

But then it depends on what the computer is going to be used for.
