Attempting a clean install of 16.10 on my Dell Mini 9’s 8GB SSD, yields an error that the disk is too small (8.6GB required).
I believe can get around this by leaving an SD card permanently in the reader and spreading some of the installation onto it via the “something else” partitioning option.
What I don’t know is which parts of the installation would work well on the SD, and which should remain on the SSD. I assume Home would be a good candidate for the SD, but beyond that I’m unsure. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Great thanks to Wimpy and the Ubuntu Mate team. After 13 years of distro hopping, I’ve found a real go-to favorite!
