I see you don't have /var directory mounted separately... With Debian based distros, the most thing is that apt will try to cache the deb files. Why not take off that /var to someplace else?? Or try to delete your log files in /var/log and deb files in /var/cache/apt/archives .My partitions are like this:
/ *220Mb * free 18.9Mb
/usr *1.5Gb *free 440Mb
/home *980Mb *free 889Mb
/boot 15Mb *free 10.5Mb.
Move a way some other stuff such as /var /tmp or stuff like that so no need to reinstall. In *nix, it doesn't matter how your drive is partitioned as long as they are mounted it right.Is there a way i can increase my / partition without losing data, or am i in for a reinstall.
