General :: Root Directory 100 Percent Used?

Dec 31, 2010

I have assigned 4G for my "/" directory, on slacware 10.2, and have not installed the GUI either. I am not sure what files to look for that have been growing over time that has completely depleted my space. Think it would be log files, but don't know where to find them.

Fedora :: Filesystem Root 100 Percent Full

Jun 25, 2010

I'm new to fedora 13 and I have been through a few installs already with a 12TB raid. Fedora is installed on a separate 250GB drive. I've mounted the 12TB drive as a single share and I'm capturing large video files (12-90GB each) to the raid in a Samba Share across the network. The system runs great for about three days and then I start getting warning messages that "the volume filesystem root has only 1.9GB of disk space remaining" then another later 205MB etc until it eventually fills to 100% and then locks the machine. If I reboot I get a Gnome error and can't login. The only solution has been to reinstall fedora again from scratch.

Each time I allocate more space for root. My current partition is 65G in size. The raid shows only 5.1TB of space used and it shows 7.2TB of free space. The raid share shows as being mounted in /media. Root shows that it will be full at 5.2TB, and I'm almost there, so I'm probably looking at another install in just a short while when it freezes again. I've read reinstall and make a larger root partition, but I'm not sure how big that must be to avoid this problem in the future. Also, is there a limitation on the size that root can be? my question stems from the fact that I have over 7TB of free space but somehow the root is reporting as 100% full at only to 5.1TB.

Server :: Root File System At 100 Percent Capacity - Why

Jun 6, 2011

When I try to install anything recently, I was getting errors about "No Space". I noticed that the root drive (/dev/sda1) has 100% usage which I'm not sure how that suddenly happened.

Code:
tom@HouseMedia:/$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 9.0G 9.0G 0 100% /
none 1.5G 552K 1.5G 1% /dev
none 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /dev/shm
none 1.5G 300K 1.5G 1% /var/run
none 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /var/lock
none 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /lib/init/rw
/dev/sdb1 294G 182G 97G 66% /mediastorage

There was a powerloss recently and I wondered if some serious corruption had occurred. Since I'm checking the root drive, I had fsck run after a restart:

Code:
sudo shutdown -F -r now

FSCK went to work, briefly, and the logs (/var/logs/checkfs and /var/logs/checkroot) remain empty. Speaking of log files, I had a look at all of them and they take up a mere 32MB, so that's not the issue...

Code:
tom@HouseMedia:/var/log$ ls -h -l
total 32M
drwxr-x--- 2 root adm 4.0K 2011-06-05 06:39 apache2
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2011-01-20 10:43 apparmor
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2011-06-01 06:37 apt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2011-03-01 06:43 aptitude
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 851 2011-02-08 10:08 aptitude.1.gz
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm................

Using Code:
du -h
I know that:
/var uses 1.2 GB
/root uses 100 K
/usr uses 1.4 GB
/tmp is empty
/home has 35 MB

Have already ran apt-get clean. How can I figure out what is taking up so much room? How can I go about figuring out what is huge and is safe to remove?

General :: Installing As Non-root In A Root Owned Directory

Mar 8, 2011

I have a machine which has only /opt with some decent amount of space where I can install a software. /opt belongs to root:root. The software I want to install cannot be installed as root user.

So lets say I create a directory called /opt/install1 and then chown -R install1 to belong to user1. And now I install the software under /opt/install1 with user as user1.

Is this a best practice violation? There could potentially be just /opt/install1 belong to user1 and in future everything else created under /opt belonging to root..

General :: How Does Kernel Know The Root Directory

Mar 26, 2010

how the kernel knows the root directory. For example, in grub menu.lst file we specify root=/dev/hda1. This tells the kernel to find mount the root directory from /dev/hda1. But to read /dev/had1 it should first know where is '/' . I couldn't understand how this is being done.

General :: Change The Root Directory For A User?

Oct 5, 2010

For a user on a Linux host, I need to make everything inaccessible besides his home directory. I have heard that this is usually done by changing the root directory for the user (and setting it to the user's home directory), however I couldn't find the way to do it.

I thought about the chroot command, but it seems it just runs the specified command, considering the specified directory as the root directory. So it seems chroot is not what i need. So my question is: what is the command which changes the user's root directory?

General :: Secure FTP Of A File To The Root Directory On CentOS?

Nov 2, 2010

I am running WHM and CPANEL on centos.I would like to upload a file to the root user directory. To be honest, my only experience uploading and downloading files with FTP has been with domain related accounts that were set up under WHM to be managed under CPANEL. This is quite simple, because all you do is set FileZilla or Dreamweaver up with the FTP address of the domain account and the username and password.How can I do something similar to FTP a file into the root or home directory?

Ubuntu :: Root User Directory Does Not Exist, Root Password Not Recognised?

Oct 26, 2010

I no longer have access to my root desktop. On a session I attempted to change the root username but i apparently assigned it a wrong directory that does not exist. When I rebooted with my new root username, i was instead recognised as a simple user (no root privileges). I tried the console to change to "old" root but root password is not accepted and there is no way to access to sudoer files. it seems that inserting a new username requires root privileges and i am back to square one. Simply logging with old root username and password after restart gives me a blank screen with nothing on it and cannot even reboot.

General :: Deleted Root Directory - How To Recover System Data

Feb 27, 2010

I have accidentally ended up in deleting my root directory while I blindly fired command while watching movie.

I fired following command
#rm -rf ~/<SPACE>*.out
instead of this command
#rm -rf ~/*.out

Things already done:
1) Created /root directory relogged to get some of basic settings of gnome and Desktop.
2) Things went well now when I login my desktop ,gnome environment and other things looks to be working well only prompt on my terminal has changed. I can fix it any ways.

Things I want to ask:
1) I haven't studied much about contents of /root directory to best of my knowledge is it like other user's home directory with some basic configuration files for mostly required applications. SO my question is have I lost any thing important system file or something?
2) If I have lost any important configuration or system data how can I recover it without reinstalling whole system? (My opinion about this is, It is quite possible but to do so, as far as I know capabilities of linux. But I still want comments from experts before I try any things on it because I don't want to backup my whole HDD and reinstall the whole stuff again for me and also my sister's stuff in MS.)

General :: Root User Using Freshclam Command Cannot Write To Directory?

Jun 27, 2010

When I log on a root and attempt to issue the command Freshclam to upgrade the virus definitions it attempts or create a new file with a definition name. I get a message stating that the directory isnt writable. The user and group access rights are as follows:

USER = read, write, execute
Group = read, write, execute
All= read, execute.

The only way I can get around this is by applying a 777 which would be read, write and execute for all. Now, I have a group define with several user ids in it including Root.How do I connect the group with the directory/file so I dont have to apply a 777 access right to group users could issue the Freshclam command.

General :: Find All Files Starting With A String Lsnr* Under Root Directory

Oct 31, 2010

I am looking for Windows Search equivalent looking for file name patterns (not file contents but file names)....

I am aware of "globbing" and wildcard recursive search functionality in ls but I am still not capable of finding files under directories.

for example: I want to find all files starting with a string lsnr* under root directory / and any sub-directories.....

ie I want to look for files like lsnr*.* anywhere under / and any sub-directories under / such as /dir1/dir2/dir4 and dir1/other/dir/someotherdir/sub-dir etc.

so if I have /dir1/lsnrcontrol and also have /dir1/dir/2/dir3/lsnr-tinit.dat then I want to list the files names etc.

how to do this using ls -R and wildcards.

General :: Multiple System Deployment (95 Percent Debian)

Jun 17, 2011

The last days I try to find a good and easy solution to keep new installed Servers with same basic configuration. For example every new Installed Server should have:

- phpmyadmin installed and configured
- munin installed and configured
- mysql server with some predefined users and passwords
- same users created with existing ssh keys. also ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file with pub key inside

At the moment I use some bash script to create the users and sync the keys. Basically I need to install predefined packages and remove some other packages configure some config files (or copy working configs). I have looked at cfengine and puppet Server. And I am asking my self if this tools are overkill for this task.
