[all variants] SSD : transfering /tmp and /var/log to another HD

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there, I intend to transfer /tmp and /var/log to another hard drive. I saw that you can mount them in memory with tmpfs but I don't want to do that (I have plenty of HD space and I love to save RAM :D ) I have 2 questions about this : 1- What space should I book ? 5GB should be more than enough right ? 2-How to set up /var/log in the second HD ? During the installation, you just create a partition and mount it as /var/log ? It seems obvious but this feel odd to me to create a mounting point that is not directly under / :-k Thx for any help !
