I am new to linux and am building my first fedora machine:
AMD Athlon II 240 X2
6 1.5tb hard drives software RAID 5
1 15gb hard drive for operating system
My question come down to partitions. I believe I need a boot partition of 100-200mb on the 15gb drive, a swap partition on the 15 gb hdd of about 4gb and the remainder for the LVM
What about for the RAID 5? Do I need Swap partitions on each of those drives? If so, how big?
I am primarily using this as a media server handling an extensive DVD/blu-ray collection, music and photos. It will be interacting with several Windows machines. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.
Does nobody know the answer? I've had a couple hundred views and no reponses.
