What I did on my system was

/swap - set to double your memory
/boot - 50MB
/ - The rest of available space

I'd do it like that, too, except that I'd use 100MB for /boot. If you compile lots of kernels, 50 MB might be too small.

Hi,

Falko but what about "var" "usr" and "tmp"?

Are you not afraid of temp files and log files? They can use a lot of space. It could be eaven DOS attack?

Best regards,
MvincM

Too many partitions make things complicated. Log files get rotated, and temp files should also be deleted automatically. I've never had problems with these.
