    Hello,

    What is the better partitioning scheme for CentOS 4 with Cpanel ?


    I read this, http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev-FAQ

    and the last 2nd Question,

    Does that mean I should have a partition dedicated to /dev ?


    Thank you.

    This has been discussed many times on the forum before and you could ask 100 people and prolly get 100 different answers.

    Its more of a personal preference than anything and no setup is necessarly better than the other

    we use

    100meg /boot
    1gig /tmp
    1gig swap
    and the rest goes into /

    but you can use the recommended cpanel setup and it work just as well

    We've seen as of late the cPanel approach as being way undersized on /var and /usr, I would definitly use larger partitions if going this route. But just like Dave said, that could be one of 100 different answer you will get.

    I do have a partiton scheme that I feel comfortable with, I just do not understand how to deal with this:

    The simplest solution is to prevent the creation of hard links by putting /dev in a separate filesystem like tmpfs.


    Thank you.
