I want to dual boot 64Stu with UbuStu - Partitioning ?
Hi guys and .. well.. (is there any girls here?) I want to dual boot 64Studio with Ubuntu Studio. I want them to share a /home partition. I will be using different account names for each distro that way all my config files are used by each distro respectively. Should I use Ext2 or ext3? The real question is it okay to mix and match, for instance make /boot and /home both ext2 and then make my / for ubuntu and 64studio ext3? I think I'm edging towards going all ext2 as I could access this if I decide to put XP on a partition. How much swap space should i allocate? i have 4gb ram, is 8gb going overboard? Should I partition using Gpartlive Live CD or using the 64Studio installer? Gparted is confusing me ATM On which distro should I use 32bit and 64bit? I'm thinking going 64bit with 64Studio and 32bit for ubuntu... Anyone have any say on which distro has better support for either arch?? I have a core2duo... Most importantly I want to use Wineasio and run VSTs ... My partition table should like ? PRIMARY /boot /sda1 ext2 PRIMARY /home /sda2 ext2 /home EXTENDED Logical- / /sdb1 - 64studio root 25gb? Logical- / /sbd2 -ubuntu root 25gb? PRIMARY /swap /sdb3 swap 8gb EXTENDED Logical /windows /sdc1 ntfs 15gb Is 2GB large enough for the boot dir? how much room should i give to 64 studio and ubuntu studio? should i install them as logical on the same extended partiton or make primarys for each? Do I have to worry about windows corrupting anything if i install it after these are both installed? Windows will overwite grub in the mbr, but i know its possible to change that after, right? Does making /boot the first partition on the hd conflict with this? Sorry about all the questions! I sound like a n00b! I've always used the 'Use Entire Hard Disk' for my Linux installations. :)
