Since installing Linux also means reinstalling android and wiping the data partition, I want to choose the right amount of space for Linux so I won't have to do that again.

I have a 64GB memory card, so I can put bulk data on that.
I was thinking of allocating 8GB. I won't be compiling the entire kernel but I will probably need to compile kernel modules, so should I allocate 10 or even 12G?

I set aside 20GB as this seem plenty left for Android (coming from a half full 32GB phone) and lots for Linux with the obvious sd card expansion route for both to access.
