So, I think 10GB Disk space for install all packages is ok ?
                
10GB is good for the root partition.  Depending on what you're using
the machine for, you might also want 20GB for /home.
              
Sorry, what useful for root partition ?
            
Edward, mine is a very average install - nowhere near everything.  'df
-h' shows
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdb1              12G  4.7G  6.7G  42% /

I think you are going to need more space than you originally thought if
you want such a lot installed.

All of the packages around 4.xGB size ?
        
Yes, at this moment, but that doesn't show any indication of /temp usage,
which can be quite high from time to time.

      
BTW, how about of your swap partition ?
        
1GB.  I had only 512MB on FC4 and it never caused me any problems.  It was
rarely used.
      
1GB swap size for 512MB actual mem ?
So, your formula is swap = actual mem * 2 ( 2x) , right ?

    
Yes.  It used to be thought that you should always have 2x actual memory, but 
that was in the days when memory was small.  It's said that nowadays you 
never need more than 512MB unless you have some activity that uses a large 
amount of memory over noticeable amounts of time.  Others on the list will 
tell you which specific activities could cause that situation.  With big 
drives it just seems easier to give a whole GB rather than split it.

So, is there a tool for changing the size of swap partition if more application program need to be running ?
