Taking the Proxmox plunge soon and looking at the admin doc but, it does not state the space requirements for the Proxmox OS. What is recommended amount of space that I need where I am not going to run out of space on new kernels, upgrades, logs etc... but still keep to a minimum for a SATA dom or similar, 16GB, 32, 64.....?

Thanks.

Yep, this is kind of a waste:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rpool/ROOT/pve-1 185G 6.3G 179G 4% /

Do note that the installer doesn't like too small root devices. I tried installing on an 8GB SATADOM I had lying around, and it refused to proceed.

You can probably get around it with some trick, or just dd it to another drive after setup, but the happy path does not support small drives.
