Partitions for multiple Linux Distros
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - I realise that this is a personal choice and so therefore would expect very different views on the subject.

A /home & swap partition you share between all distro's. Then +/- 5 GB (I would say 7 GB is better though, because of the space log files can take) for each distro.Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.
So you have 1 OS on the machine that takes up the entire hard drive?
You could Download Knoppix from www.distrowatch.com and fire up qtparted and resize Suse to whatever you want.
Personally I resized my 120 GB hd into a bunch of 13-14 GB partitions that all share the same swap.
I use Suse grub to boot all of my distros. You can make a separate /home. I don't do this so I can't recommend a HOWTO.
For more info on multi-booting, do a search for "multi-boot" on this site, look for my username, tons of info.Pick up a starving dog, prosper him, and he won't bite you.
