What is the recommended OS drive partition layout for my HDA?

For simplicity sake the system OS partitions are: 1) /boot 2) swap 3) / (root)

  • boot should be 500MB
  • swap should be 1 to 2 times the size of your RAM
  • root should be at a minimum 10GB
  • the partitioning process at install will try to create a large /home. We do not recommend that. For Amahi, the large content is best served in /var/hda/files

LVM is optional, but not required. The Amahi team does not recommend LVM in general because the complexities introduced exceed the value introduced.
