Hello, I am getting my very first SSD (256gb M4) that I plan to use as my OS drive for Ubuntu 13.04. I have heard that minimizing unnecessary writes to an SSD is a good idea and that there are some things like trim that need to be set up after install. My question is more about partitioning. I would like to get the full speed benefits of an SSD while making sure to limit large writes to the drive (some of my uses will need very large writes to /tmp) and so I would like to use a 500gb platter drive for storage and those large temporary writes. And I would like to keep the OS and all apps on the SSD for the performance increase. Can anyone recommend exactly how to go about this? The system is quad core with 12gigs of ram, so don't think I will need any swap space, but I'm having trouble figuring out my partitioning set up for /boot, /, /home and the sizes those partitions should be for a 256gb drive and I'm not quite sure how to make my /tmp and any other dir's you guys think might be appropriate point to the 500gb drive which will also be the "storage" drive for the machine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
