I was just wondering how everyone on Nixers partions their drives. I know its somewhat of a simple question, but seeing as I am new to the community and have less than two years experience with Unix, I figure I might as well ask. Show off your partition schemes with "lsblk" and lets see how you partition!


SDA:
---: SDA1: 191M /boot
---: SDA2: 18.6G /
---: SDA3: 11.2 /var
---: SDA4: (REST OF DISK) /home

note: Pasting is being a bit wonky right now so it was personally formatted, thanks for your time.

My laptop has a 320GB hard drive (sda) and a small (32GB) SSD that was designed to be used as a cache drive for Windows (sdb).

sda1: 39.19MB - fat16 - DellUtility (the diagnostics thing)
sda2: 13.81GB - ntfs - RECOVERY (actually don't know what this is for :/)
sda3: 153.57GB - ntfs - OS (Windows 7)
sda4: 130.50GB - extended (fits all the Linux stuff)
sda5: 8.00GB - linux-swap
sda6: 122.50GB - ext4 - /home
sdb1: 32GB - ext4 - /

Having / on an SSD is so nice, everything is nice and speedy. Didn't realise the main harddrive was such a mess though >.<


EDIT: Didn't see the lsblk thing, here you are:

Code:
NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 298.1G  0 disk
├─sda1   8:1    0  39.2M  0 part

├─sda3   8:3    0 153.6G  0 part

├─sda5   8:5    0     8G  0 part [SWAP]
