    How can it run out of room ??

    Look at my freaking file system.

    Code:
    compunuts@sienna:~$ df -h
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda1             1.9G  1.8G   21M  99% /
    tmpfs                  94M     0   94M   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/hda2             1.1G  483M  578M  46% /home
    /dev/hdb2             1.1G  279M  787M  27% /var
    /dev/hdc1             3.0G  321M  2.5G  12% /data
    compunuts@sienna:~$
    I have not that many stuff on it. Some basic stuff, OO.o, GNUCash, IRC, LICQ, no bloat Mozilla ( just firefox ), no games and stuff. Geeee ....

    Anybody run out of room like that on 2G root partition? What kind of crap would take that many space? I thought only Windows take too much space but now I'm not sure it holds any truth to it.

    I'm using 3.8G

    That's with OOo, KDE, etc.. when hd's get bigger, the size of everything seems to as well.

    Do a du -x -d1 on / and see what's taking up so much space.

    WOW ... now this is a great tool ..... Never know it existed. Thanks.

    Although it can be overwhelming, it's still going through file system after about 3 minutes now, but it can be very helpful.

    ;D

    Re:How can it run out of room ??

    At least I have found so far that a great deal of space is used ( uselessly? ) by /usr/share/gnome/help with different languages ( but all I use is English but there are at least a few more such as de, fr, it, ja, a few chineses and so on ) and /usr/share/docs/ . I mean I've never read a doc from my box and since I have multiple boxes, I don't think I need them. Plus, there are manuals for things that I never installed such as KDE and webmin. Also, I don't have KDE but I have KDE stuff like khtml, kworldclock, kdeprint and stuff. Geeee .......

    I can't seem to find a single biggest file ( or a few ) that I could delete and be done with it. It was all messy stuff all over.

    Now, I need to go back to Debian's way of minimalist aproach again unless I can get 160 GB drive in here.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    hello,
    i had a strange thing happen to me twice, my partition was completely full, i found an offending file but it size was no where near what the filesystem said it was. i never figured out what cuased it it, but rebooting and running fsck.ext3 fixed it...

    Check /opt often that is not given it's own partition and can be huge. Just symlink it to like /usr/opt or something (But move it there first)
