Fedora :: Running Out Of Space - How To Extend Partition

Mar 4, 2011

I have an Asus eee, it has a solid state drive which has been partitioned with a 4GB and 8GB partition. I installed Fedora 14 onto the 4GB partition but I am running out of space. I have formatted the 8GB partition with ext4 but I am unsure the best way to create more space for the default installation. Can I extend my / partition onto the 8GB partition or possible move the /swap partition onto it?

General :: Space In / Partition Running Out

Jul 27, 2011

I recently installed Linux Mint alongside Win 7 and following the instructions , I created seperate / and /home partitions. The more applications i install (I have installed a couple of big games) the less space i have in /. Is there any way I can install these in /home instead ? Or do i need to boot up with Gparted and increase my /partition. I only gave the / partition 10 gigs because i was advised that this was all i'd ever need.

Ubuntu Servers :: Running Out Of Space On /var Partition?

Jan 31, 2011

I have a Ubuntu 8.10 perfect server and I made a stupid decision at install. I selected only 160 gb for /var partition and now it's 99% full. I added another mail domain and they came with alot of emails from the old server. How can I manage this? I got /home partition that's double in size and it's almos empty. Can I create a shortcut for the whole domain and move it to /home? Right now it resides in [URL]. I would like to make this move without affecting the files properties nor users passwords. Most perfect would be to remake the whole system on a single / partition. I have configured a soft raid thou using 2 hard-disks in mirror. So I prefer to get a new hard-disk, format it for a single / partition and swap and move the whole system on that. Would it be too complicated? Or make a new Perfect Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server with ispconfig 2 and move the whole domains with the users passwords and emails and websites?

Ubuntu :: Encrypted /home Partition And Running Out Of Space?

May 26, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One, Model ZG5 (also known as the 110 with 8GB SSD) which originally came with Linpus Lite installed on it.

I previously had 9.10 installed which was great, but I've done a fresh install of UNR 10.04 since I had a full /home partition and wanted to set up with more space.

This time, I opted for a larger /home drive (~4GB) and also to have it encrypted, which is a good idea for netbooks given their portability (and I have no idea why I didn't do it before!). Since I had very little space on my 8GB drive (if I wanted a larger /home) then I installed /home onto a separate partition, which is located on a 16GB SD card which lives in my machine permanently.

Installation was a breeze, and encryption seems to work fine. I have verified it and it seems to be working. However, I've now hit two related problems - one of which is to do with Thunderbird, and one which is an issue with the encrypted /home drive.

Firstly, I have a large gmail account which I like to replicate offline in Thunderbird (am using v 3.0.4). My online gmail tells me that I'm using 1.4GB of data space online. Using the old T'bird (v2.whatever) my offline T'bird storage was approximately the same size. This is not now true of my current offline storage file size, which is showing at 3.2GB for the same data. I started with a clean slate, just installing T'bird, setting up my account and then leaving it to download all data from Google.

Anyone know why this offline size is so much bigger than the online storage size or even the previous offline storage size?

Secondly, the encrypted /home drive. Given that I needed I put this on a separate card and partition, I had hoped to escape any issues with not having enough space. However, my system is now telling me that /home is out of space...

Specifically, I can see that I have used 3.6 of my 3.8GB storage for /home. This is due to the large size of my offline storage folder.

As I see it, I need to do one of two things (possibly both) - reduce the size of my offline e-mail storage, and increase the size of my /home partition.

Reducing the offline storage will be about finding out why it's so big in the first place.

However, if I wanted to increase the size of my encrypted /home file how would I do this? I have used gparted to make additional space after it - so I could increase the size if it's possible, but I am a little concerned.

If I just increase the size of the partition, would this work? Are there issues with the fact that it's an encrypted partition? What should I be aware of if I wanted to increase an already in-use partition, and how should I best go about this?

Do I need to do it from a live USB image?

Software :: Extend Volume Group Size Over The Remaining Space?

Mar 28, 2010

extend the size of a LVM2 volume group over the remaining free space available on a physical volume. My linux box is a Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 64bit, the 60GB hard disk has 2 win partition for about 19GB, a 1.5GB ext3 boot partition and finally a 36GB LVM partition (/dev/sda4) on which I created a volume group (volgrp) smaller 10GB than the 36GB physical volume (/dev/sda4). What I want now is to extend the size of volume group up to the end of physical volume. I tried to use the "vgextend volgrp /dev/sda4" but system answers me
with following output:

me@pc:~> sudo vgextend volgrp /dev/sda4
Physical volume '/dev/sda4' is already in volume group 'volgrp'
Unable to add physical volume '/dev/sda4' to volume group 'volgrp'.

Here the output of fdisk command:

me@pc:~> sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7296 cylinders

Ubuntu :: When Looked At Partition Table, The Space Where The Partition Used To Be Is Now Unallocated Space?

Jul 18, 2011

I originally had an Ubuntu partition on my hard drive which occupied about half of it. I installed Windows 7 in the remaining unallocated space and I was planning on doing a grub update from a live cd afterwards. BUT when I looked at my partition table, the space where the ubuntu partition used to be is now unallocated space!

Red Hat :: Cannot Extend PV (LVM) After Resizing Partition

Dec 16, 2010

I know there are probably alot of threads about lvm however they aren't addressing my problem. I want to extend the PEs available in a VG. This VG already has LVs and those are active and mounted. From what I read from the manpages of pvresize this should be perfectly possible.
pvresize resizes PhysicalVolume which may already be in a volume group and have active logical volumes allocated on it.

I did the following steps and wonder if anyone has the same issue. THe machine where I am talking about is an ESX VM.
1. Resized the vmdk in ESX (+1G)
2. Let the kernel reread the device geometry: echo 1 > /sys/block/sdc/device/rescan
3. fdisk shows me the new size... so far so good
4. I resize the partition using fdisk (remove, recreate) and gave it the 8e type (lvm)
5. wrote config to disk
6. executed partprobe
7. pvresize /dev/sdc

Here it goes wrong! Pvresize says in the verbose output it sees the same size however at the end it says the pv has been resized. I have seen when I put volumes "offline" using vgchange -a n vg on a test machine, and then try pvresize it seems to work ok. This is against what is in the manual as it says pvresize should work on online mounted volumes.

Red Hat / Fedora :: RAID0 Setup - Running Out Of Storage Space

Feb 3, 2011

I have a Fedora NAS (not built by me) there is a 1 Tera of storage 2x 500 set at raid 0. The server runs Fedora 7/8 I believe which, runs flawlessly. Sadly, I am running out of storage space and would like to add more. Can I just put another drive in the box? If so, what do I need to do and what impact does it have on the existing raid 0 setup. Ideally I would like to put two additional in but I am not confident how to configure them. Is this just a case of mapping them in Windows 7.
