Which partitions to make on which drives for maximum performance?
I've messed around with fair few distros recently and finally decided to install a super-slimmed down Debian with XCFE4.
What I'm wondering is which partitions should go on which drives.
Basically, I've got an EEE PC 900 with 2x SSDs. One is 4GB (And I think is slightly quicker) which the OS boots from and the other one is 16GB which is where all your files go.
At first I installed the OS and all associated files onto the small one and just had the 16GB as one big /home (and a swap) but completely failed to realise that that would leave absolutely no space for applications whatsoever (And sure enough, after only installing the basics, it ran out of space).
So I re-installed it, but this time I only mounted / on the smaller drive and everything else (/bin, /usr etc etc...) onto the larger SSD thinking that this would leave loads more space for applications.
This worked ok but applications seem to be taking a good while to load. Much longer than they did on the small SSD.
So basically, what would be the best option for me partition-wise so that I have enough room to install the applications I want with the best performance?
Did a search on here and on the web but there doesn't seem to be anything about it.
