Please critic my partition sizes for HTPC
I am building an HTPC with 4G RAM, 32G SSD and 1T SATA3 drive.
All the HTPC will ever run is VLC. Currently, I plan to install Ubuntu but eventually I would like to create a stripped down version of Linux that is enough to run VLC.
After going through various articles, here is what I am thinking in terms of my partition ayout
/ - Primary partition on SSD. All 32G. Includes /boot and /usr.
swap - swap partition 8G (twice the amount of RAM)
/var - 10G (Log files)
/home - Rest of the 1T space (stores media)
With /boot on the SSD, I hope the system can boot quickly.
1. What do you think of this layout?
2. Given that I am not using anything besides VLC, does it make sense to create /tmp as a separate partition?
3. Any other feedback?
Thank you in advance for your help.
