Partitioning a USB Flash Drive For Full Mint 13 Install
This blog has proved very helpful background for me of late, and perhaps you can assist me! With Mint maven assistance, I've been successful installing and running Mint 9 on a 8gig flash (not "live" or persistent, but a full install) and runs superbly -- with one caveat; when Mint updates it bloats the drive! From an initial 1.8 gigs free it's down to 320megs with space warnings. I decided to backup my Mint 9 home folder so I can fully install Mint 13 on my flash for max drive space over mere space hungry live/persistent as with 9 before, and I got as far as the live CD's partitions creator when I got stuck! I lost my touch from how I installed Mint 9 a while ago in exactly how to set-up the partitions and in what sized segments as /boot, /home and swat. I wish there was a kind of script that looks at your USB flash and auto figures out a way to set up appropriate partitions and lets you move on to installing. If at all possible, can anyone recommend me what partitions and the type and sizes of each to set up for my flash so I don't have to spend weeks of trial and error at this again like with Mint 9, especially as at 81 I don't really have that much time left to fiddle with! :D
Any assist will of course be greatly appreciated.
