I bought a SSD to re-install Linux Mint on it and use my old HDD to store my personnal data...This way my computer might run faster.
I will to partition the disks as follow.
/ on SSD
/home on HDD
/var on HDD
/swap on HDD
/var and /swap will be on the HDD so Linux won't write too many times on the SSD.
Should I use this partitioning scheme or should I leave /var on the SSD and mount /var/log in tmpfs with a limited size so it will use swap if /var/log gets full.
This is a laptop computer used for web browing and digital picture editing (gimp, darktable).
Are there any other /var/xxx dirs to mount in tmpfs ?
Beside this I will also tweak Linux to not warite too many times on the SSD.
