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).

General :: Decompress A Tar File - Butrun Out Disk Space

Feb 7, 2011

I'm running a virtual machine of CentOS 3 and I am trying to decompress a tar file, but I run out disk space. I created the VM with 80 GB of disk space. When I look at the partititions, (du command) I have /dev/sda2 with a partition of 70GB mounted on /home with < 1% used.

Here comes the n00b question: How do I use the 70GB of space on sda2? I thought working in the /home directory, where sda2 is mounted, would give me access to that disk space, but the tar files fill up the /boot partition.

Ubuntu :: Add Hard Disk Expand Disk Space For /home

May 23, 2010

ran out of space in my /home dir. Have a second hard drive to install and would like to designate it as additional space for /home. I do not want to mount it as a dir inside my home I would like it to simply work as though my /home simply has more space available to it.

Ubuntu :: Less Hard Disk Space Available Than Actual

Jul 22, 2010

I recently bought a new pc and installed Ubuntu on it. It came with a 500gb hard drive and during installation I manually partitioned it as follows:

10 gb (ntfs) for a windows partition
15 gb (ext4) mounted on /
4 gb for swap
the rest (470gb - ext4) mounted on /home

I've just installed a few apps from the repository, nothing big (about 500 mb in all), but in the 'file system' tab in 'system monitor' it says that for /home I have a total of only 432 gb, of which just 408 gb are available, with 500mb used. According to this, around 60gb of space have just vanished into thin air. Where did all this missing disk space go? The disk is brand new and there are no bad sectors in it.

Hardware :: Hard Disk Partition Out Of Space?

Dec 14, 2010

have Debian "testing" installed. During the installation I selected to have a separate /home partition. / partition is ~10Gb, and my /home is ~300Gb. I didn't think I would need more than 10 for /.The other night, Debian informed me that I had 0 bytes remaining on /. I purged /temp an went about my day, only to be greeted with the message again the next morning.I've tried shrinking /home and increasing / via an Ubuntu live CD with GParted, but for some reason it did not want to work. However, I am beginning to suspect that my /home folder is occupying the / partition, and not the separate /home partition.Output of fdisk -l

Code:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1216 9764864 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 1216 38914 302803969 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 1216 1974 6082560 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6 1974 38914 296720384 83 Linux

Ubuntu :: Unable To See The Free Space On Hard Disk

Aug 14, 2010

I currently dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04, before I came back on Ubuntu, I uninstall-ed many programs to free up some space. Before I restarted my computer to boot back into Ubuntu my Internal HD had 43.5GB of free space, and when I booted into Ubuntu I checked the free space and it only showed 7.9GB of free space, did I check the wrong thing? Is 'File System' the Ubuntu equivalent to the C: drive in Windows?

I went with the install and now that it is ready the disk manager says I have 280gb space what is this please? Should I reinstall ubuntu to get the missing hd space ?

Ubuntu :: Log Files Eating Hard Disk Space?

Jan 29, 2009

running ubuntu 8.10 amd64 on my HP intel 2.26ghz dual core processor, 320gb hdd and 4gb ram. My main problem is that when I dual booted ubuntu onto my laptop, I had vista already installed, so I only set aside 20GB of hard disk space for ubuntu, which seems like more than enough to me. What's going on is that it says I have used all my space and only have one GB left, when the only thing I have on my computer are word files and necessary installs like flash player, compiz, avant, etc.When trying to hunt down what was using all my space, first I checked out the disk usage analyzer (some pics from here in):theres my hdd with 1/19 gb remaining here's a breakdown of my home folder, showing that it's not using very much at allhere's my filesystem, now we can see that all the space is being used in the folder: /var

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?

Ubuntu Servers :: Hard Disk Half Full - System Says No Space Left

Jun 30, 2011

For our workgroup I set up a server which is basically 10.04.2 with kernel 2.6.32-32-server on a SSD and all the data on a RAID 5 consisting of 4 2TB hard disks, thus a maximum of 6TB space for data on the RAID. Having multiple users with different amounts of data from different scientific data source I set up an lvm on top of the RAID

--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/sdb2
VG Name home-data
PV Size 5,45 TiB / not usable 3,00 MiB

[code]...

Here is the problem: The volume Genomes (or /genomes) is half full

sudo df -ah
/dev/mapper/home--data-Genomes
1,9T 850G 920G 49% /genomes

but the system states it as full whenever I try to add more data (tried cp and rsync). There is no quota set to the volume (I have quotas in place for users home folders. These are only for max amount of disk space, not max file number, and I am still able to move/add files elsewhere so there seems to be no interference).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Hard Disk Frequent Head Unloads - Disk Clicking Whilst Idle?

Jun 2, 2010

I created a thread about a problem a I had with my hard disk clicking whilst idle little while ago and I may now have stumbled upon a possible solution. The strange thing with the problem is that Ubuntu/Kubuntu didn't cause this problem but Opensuse 11.2 does.

I installed Fedora 13 to have a glimpse of what all the fuss was about and noticed that I had the same problem (hard disk clicking whilst idle ~ every 20 secs or so). Now there's a wiki on this subject and a few bug reports: [url]

Problem Description

Some ATA harddrives perform very frequent head unloads under Linux significantly shortening their lifespans. Root cause

The inactivity timer for head unload is configured too aggressively either via ATA APM (Advanced Power Management) feature or other non-standard means. Such aggressive settings are very fragile to changes in IO pattern and under Linux many such drives unload their heads only to re-load them shortly. Note that this relentless unloading/reloading cycle can also be triggered under Windows by installing programs which can alter the IO pattern (e.g. certain vaccine programs which runs in background).

Now two of the listed models with this problem are basically identical to my model (Dell Inspiron 1520) and basically share the same hardware: Dell Vostro 1500 and XPS 1520.

The workaround listed is to:

set APM to 254

Furthermore, there is a script: Storage-Fixup which can also be downloaded from opensuse software search. Indeed there is a report of this for a Vostro 1500: Gmane Loom

The report suggests looking at: Disk Power Management - openSUSE which lists a method to create a configuration file to management disk power management:

My question is whether I could download the storage-fixup rpm [url] has a description of it and it can be found: Software.openSUSE.org) and install it to (hopefully) solve the issue or should I follow the method given in: Disk Power Management - openSUSE

to set APM to 254:

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.
