1.  Why

I need a particular setup, so I had to revive an unused machine...

2.  What

it's about a "Serveur KS-2E - AtomN2800 - 4GB - 1x2To SATA", that is a server from kimsufi.com, with a small processor, but lot of disk space.

The initial setup was called "Leap", and in fact was from openSUSE Leap 42.3. I immediately upgraded this to the Leap 15.0 version, current in 2019. I now boot on the openSUSE kernel.

3.  How

I choose my own disk partition config:

Périphérique Amorçage      Début        Fin   Secteurs Taille Id Type
/dev/sda1    *              4096  204802047  204797952  97,7G 83 Linux
/dev/sda2              204802048 3902828543 3698026496   1,7T 83 Linux

sda1 is for the hole system (home included), sda2 is for /data, free for any use, sda3 is swap.
