Hello
 what 's the ideal partitionning for a workstation user  ?

I've got a small /boot partition with 20 Mo aand the remaining for /

the reason I'm asking this is that it seems that everytime I have lot
of read write on the hard disk,( yum update for example)  it "lags" or
stalls my pc

if your machine is swapping and you're both reading and writing to other sections of the disk you can expect lo performance. The only real solutions are more ram or more or faster disks.


is there a "magic partition" software for linux users ?

obviously the optimum partitioning scheme is the one that puts all your data close together... that isn't very practical if you intend to use most of the disk anyway so that basically just re-arranging the deck chairs on the titanic.


thanks

hicham.
