OpenSUSE Install :: Will Disk Space Increasing Wihtout Shuting Down?

Mar 18, 2011

I am running OpenSUSE 11.4, and have 2 partition in it, one is / (about 10GB), another one is /home (about 50GB). I usually put into sleep when I'm away from my computer. It had been few days I never shut down my computer, and today I got a warning message mention that my disk space (/home partition) is full. I check my disk space in Dolphin's properties menu for the /home directory, found out that it only used up 10GB disk space. I did a check on the "My Computer" on the desktop, the status is showing full usage (100%) in red color. I did df -h command, the partition for the /home is showing 100% used as well. I don't really know what is going on, and then I restart my PC. It back to normal after I come back to my Linux, which is 10GB disk space used. I don't know whether this is a bug in OpenSUSE or not.

Ubuntu Installation :: Increasing Size Of Hard Disk Space Allocated For Filesystem?

Jan 4, 2010

I recently installed Bio-Linux 5.0 as a dual boot system with XP for some bioinformatics applications, but Im having some problems with the amount of disk space which can be allocated specifically for the Ubuntu install.

I partitioned a 250 GB portable hard drive into:

/dev/sdb1: 154.76 GiB (with 30 GiB allocated for Ubuntu)
/dev/sdb2 : 78.13 GiB

Ive been using blastclust to analyse some very large data sets, which keeps on crashing due to filesystem running out of disk space.

When I installed Bio-Linux 5.0 from the live cd, the maximum size I could allocate to the install was 30 GiB, and I havent been able to find a way to change this.

Ive tried using System->Administration->Partition Editor using the live cd, and can view / delete the partitions, but I cant find a way to specifically alter the disk space allocation for Ubuntu.

How do I increase the filesystem size to larger than the current 30 GiB?

I am getting the 'out of disk space' warning for my '/' partition.I'm hoping there is a way I can either delete files that are not needed, or reallocate space that is not needed on other partitions. I'm running opensuse 11.2 (using the LXDE desktop) on an old notebook with a P3 processor and 512 of ram, with a 25GB hard drive.Here are the results of "df -h"

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 Eats Up Disk Space?

Feb 7, 2010

Maybe it's specific feature, but it does not seem right that within ~30 m to 1h 3gb of disk space on /home are gone due to I can't tell what exactly. Usually it happens while listening to music via vlc or browsing www (chrome and firefox). I got 3gigs of ram (95% in use under such conditions), and 1,5gb of swap that is not used at all by the system.Its a KDE.

In our setup, users have a 256M quota by default on their home directory. That of course is close to 200M, which is the default threshold for kded to throw popups around "you're low on disk space". What would be the global file to change this number?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Install Antivirus / Have No Disk Space

Apr 8, 2011

I just installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu and after running it for a few days I am having some strange issues. First, I cannot access the Applications men. When I click on the tab it highlights but I do not get a drop down menu. Also, I am being told when I boot up that there is no hard disk space. If I go to places->computer and check hard disk properties I am told that there is 66MB of space (I have a 640MB drive and only Ubuntu is installed). I think I have a virus but I cannot install an antivirus because I "have no disk space" and can't access the terminal through applications.

Ubuntu :: Partitioning Disk Space And 10.10 Install Requirements?

Apr 13, 2011

I am testing release 10.10 of Ubuntu desktop from a USB boot drive. It looks great so far, and I am thinking of installing it on the machine. However, I would like to know the disk space requirements. I know I could look them up, Also, while working with the interface I accessed all of the machines devices from the Linux OS and saw that I could partition an existing partition. However, that houses the Windows XP SP3 installation and I was wondering if altering partition size would wipe its contents.

I would be awsome if I could dynamically alter the partition to the size required by Ubuntu plus some slack for applications and the like so I could have both OSs on the same machine without having to reformat the drive for dual boot and re-install both OSs.

OpenSUSE :: Decompress The 75Gb File In Some /tmp Space In Hard Disk

Apr 8, 2011

I have tried to plan my backup plans. As I want it simple I am gonna use only tar.gz combination of some files that are important. My question then is the following:

-I have a 100GB hard disk with 20Gb free space only. I would like to backup the rest 80Gb to an external hard disk. I run my scripts which end up saving a 75Gb(due to compression) to my external hard disk.

-->Then comes the times to try to see the contents of my archive (just to make sure that I can recover what is inside the 75GB disk file). Do you know if tar.gz needs to decompress the 75Gb file in some /tmp space in my hard disk for showing me the contents inside it? In that case it will not be easy at all to ever look at what is inside it in my hard disk, as there is no 80Gb of free space in my hard disk (20gb only).

Ubuntu Installation :: Light Weight (low Disk Space) Install?

Jun 21, 2011

So I wanted to install Ubuntu 11.04 on my ASUS 900a that only has 4GB of disk space. Of course Ubuntu 11.04 requires 4.4GB, so I started looking for alternatives.I tried to get Lubuntu 11.04, but when I ran the installation process it states that 5GB are required. Not very light weight IMHO if this is the case.I was hoping that someone had an idea of how to install a strippted version of Ubuntu 11.04 (maybe without some of the apps like the LibreOffice Suite) or knew why Lubuntu was asking for so much hard drive space.I'm hoping to move away from my light-weight version of WinXP.

Slackware :: Disk Space Lost- Root Partition Has Very Little Space Left

Jan 31, 2010

Today I was installing a lot of software since I'm just setting up my Slackware system again after a fresh install, and I realized that my root partition has very little space left.

Here is the output of df -h:


Code:

As you can see, I have a 20G (19G here for some reason) root partition, 8G /var, and 86G of /home. I thought this would be plenty since many recent recommendations for / are 10-15G. Now, though, 17G are used up for some reason! How is this possible? I thought a full slackware install only had about 4G of software! I don't have any music or movies or any crazy huge files that I know of, and those would be in my /home directory anyway. Is there any way I can see which files are taking up all this space?

If it's necessary to allocate more space to my / partition, is it still possible to boot up a GParted live Cd, shrink /home a bit, move some partitions to the right, and expand my root partition? I would REALLY prefer I don't have to reinstall since I just spent a ton of time setting up my system again, but if worst comes to worst ... :'-(

In case you're curious, here's my /etc/fstab:

Ubuntu :: Disk Full - Can't Free Any Disk Space

Jan 2, 2010

I'm running mythbuntu 9.04 and am having an issue with disk space.

I try 'rm' various log files but the space I free up lasts less than a minute before the disk reports as being full once more.

df -Th | sort gives:

Quote:

/dev/sda1 ext3 8.3G 7.9G 0 100% /
/dev/sda6 ext3 138G 125G 6.3G 96% /music
/dev/sda7 xfs 783G 617G 167G 79% /videos
/dev/sdb2 xfs 344G 242G 103G 71% /recordings

[Code]....

There's nothing enormous in /var/log and my trash and the root trash are empty.

why size and used fields are not the same despite 100% usage being reported on sda1..

General :: Disk Utility And Df Show Different Disk Space ?

Nov 18, 2010

I don't understand disk sizes in Linux. I have a 500GB drive. It's ext4. I have run "tune2fs -m 0" on it to reserve the amount of space reserved for root to 0.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 that comes with a Disk Utility. When I run "System->Administration->Disk Utility (palimpsest)" the disk shows up as 500GB (see picture). But when I run df -h it shows up as 459GB. So, I don't understand the discrepancy.

When I run df I get the following:

Question: Why is Disk Utility showing me something different than "df"?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Disk Seen When Booting The Disk In Another System?

Jan 2, 2010

My dual proc, dual core Opteron MSI Master2FAR motherboard failed, and I try to boot a disk, used on this board as boot disk, on an Intel based Gigabyte GA-965-DS3. Both systems are x86_64 architecture.

The OS is on both systems is openSUSE 11.1.

On booting the disk on the Gigabyte, the disk is seen correctly by the BIOS, but not by the OS, and there is no /dev/sdX; no /dev/disk/... either. I am taken to a login shell from the ramdisk.

When I just mount this disk on the Gigabyte (booted with the Gigabyte's original boot disk) everything seems fine. No suprise to me, since the disk was fine, and was unmounted gracefully and physically taken off the MSI before the board failed.

I think that the cause lies in the fact that the harddisk controller on the Gigabyte is different from the MSI, and the driver for that controller is not available at boot time.

I have two questions:

- is my assumption correct, or is something else going on?

- if I am right, is there a way to get this disk booting on the Gigabyte (or on another system, for that matter)?

You might want to ask why I want to boot this disk on the Gigabyte in the first place, since I can mount it and see all data on it. I have a reason for that, but telling that story would make this topic too long, and it's too off-topic. Most certainly I will get to that in another topic.

CentOS 5 :: Install CentOS 5.2, And The Installation Ran Out Of Disk Space After Running For About 2 Hours?

Feb 18, 2010

I am trying to install CentOS 5.2, and the installation ran out of disk space after running for about 2 hours.I checked the FAQ, and it said 1.2 GB. The disk is 3 GB. The default install was selected, and I think that it checks for sufficient available disk space before installing. Still, it ran for quite a while before announcing that it was out of disk space.The Installation Guide is not very helpful, since there is a blank page where the disk space requirement is supposed to be. I just picked the default installation. A search of the forums on "not enough disk space" did not return much.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse11.4 - Clear Up A Free Space In HD To Install Win7 ?

Jul 9, 2011

Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.

My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:
