I want to install ROS on another partition because my / partition is almost full.

How do I install ROS on the partition I specify on parameters? like /dev/sdc5

I found a similar question but with no answer that tells how to change partitions.

Thank you~

Do you want to install from source or packages?

From packages, you can't really change the path of installation. The cleanest way I would suggest is to mount your other partition at /opt (unless your already have other things in /opt, then mount it at /opt/ros). Then the installation would reside in /opt but on the other partition. Alternately you can make a symlink to /opt/ros from your other partition.

From source you can choose any directory you want and then set the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH accordingly.
