Don’t. Put everything into one and enjoy. Maybe keep 1 GB MB for a swap
Creating partitions for / /usr, … is BS for a test setup. And actually for
Try it. If you like it, and you want to set up a bigger one, just create:
your data (/home)
That way, you can crash you system, change it, reinstall it… without
loosing your data/preferences.
Any time things appear to be going better, you have overlooked
I’d just accept the suggestion the installer makes, it tends to make sensible suggestions, if given enough room it will suggest 20GB for root, but it will give a lower suggestion if all you have is 20GB.
