Hello, I would like to create custom partitions during installation, but I cannot find a guide on partition suggestions (EFI partition, boot, swap, etc) with their reccomendet sizes.
The recommended sizes are built in to Anaconda now. If you click on “Custom partitioning”, you can select “Click here to create them automatically” and that will create them for you. You can then tweak them as necessary.
This is in a VM, so it doesn’t take EFI etc into account, but it should create those for you also. This is the documentation, but it doesn’t mention the recommended sizes anymore:
I have the following sizes on my system, and they work quite well:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/nvme0n1p7 49G 33G 15G 70% / /dev/nvme0n1p5 976M 215M 695M 24% /boot /dev/nvme0n1p8 237G 72G 153G 32% /home /dev/nvme0n1p1 256M 49M 208M 19% /boot/efi
Hello @andrea76, welcome to the forum. Please take a moment to have a look at this Fedora Magazine article, it may be of some use for you. https://fedoramagazine.org/learning-about-partitions-and-how-to-create-them-for-fedora/ Greg does a good job of writing this up.
Advice from OpenBSD FAQ: Try to not use the whole drive just because your can. Leave some space as a reserve. This will help your to install dualboot with some LTS distro, if needed. Or just make a Stock for cinema / old savegames and such. Also Fedora uses LVM by default, and this can be grown later.
