I use windows and I want to install linux redhat beside it. So, in windows, I shrinked my Local Disk C 120gb, with Disk Management (control panel). During installation of redhat, I got to the step where I have to choose the partition where it will be installed.
First, I tried the 4th option ( use free space to create a partition), but it gave me error: Not enough disk space. So, I tried the 5th option ( create a new partition). It showed me the partitions on my pc, and showed me : Free, of size 120 gb. I tried to create a new partition, but it gave me the same error.
Why is this happening although I have 120 gb free (unallocated)?
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:
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 ... :'-(
I was going about tweaking it and preparing it to my needs, While installing through yum I dont have much other than the fact that I have to search for the packages. But when I open "Add/remove software" of Fedora. I am greeted with " No space left on the disk" and when I seek for more details it says " Disk Error :[errno 5] Input/output error"I did some research and I saw that it usually occurs during installation, but here I have successfully installed it.Can someone help me with it? Later on I even had notification of the same warning. And mind you I got loads of free space.
I have been tasked with finding out why we appear to be running out of disk space on our Redhat server and am coming across some strange inconsistencies in the way disk use is reported.For example, df -h is showing...
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 63G 56G 3.9G 94% /
I was reading the fedora Disk requirements and it said you need 9 GB of disc space. Which partition should this 9 GB of space be on? I plan on having a / root partition, /home partition, a swap partition, and a /boot partition.
Quote: 1.2.3. Hard disk space requirements for all architectures The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space. Final size is entirely determined by the installing spin and the packages selected during installation. Additional disk space is required during installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img (on Installation Disc 1) plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.
In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for a larger installation. Additional space is also required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation. [URL]
I have been having mysterious problems with my comp recently and I think it might have to do with my OS not releasing filespace. Previously, my OS partition was full, then I deleted/moved some files, but now it says that still no space is available:
The OS being /dev/sda1 (I am 99% sure, didn't set it up originally) and is CentOS4. As you can see, I have only used 7.6GB, and I should have 300MB available. Only thing I can think of is that when it was full, I moved matlab from there to the /export drive and added in a symbolic link to where it was on the OS drive so it would still work ok. Could this be why the space is not being freed up? We are in the process of installing a 16TB drive so we can free up some space or expand the partition, but somebody else here at work is handling that, so some other option that I could do would be best.
I've just managed to compress my LVs, extend my VG to my new SSD, move the LVs to the SSD and remove the old disk from the VG. All is well and good (mind you, I did kill my /home partition but it's sorted now...)
My next step was to shrink the PV (I think that's what I want to shrink?) so that I can add another partition to the SSD (to reduce compile times). See below for my current setup. I have a 35G PV with LVs totalling around 33G but the "partition" of the LVM is still 58G.
I am on a windows 7 system trying to install linux fedora 15.
I am using Fedora 15 live image which I burned onto a DVD and booted. According to instructions I've found in a tutorial I go into the system tools and choose install to harddrive. I have previously shrunk the windows system drive to free up approx 200 GB of unallocated space. I did this through the control panel >> administrative tools >> computer management >> windows disk manager.
While I try to install fedora on the harddrive I run into two problems. 1. I can't install it because it says "no free space available to create partition". it doesn't matter if I choose the auto partition option or the custom partition option.
Choosing the custom partitioning option I don't know what partitions I need to create. Terminology such as LVM and PV are all new to me.
The second problem is that I am after some random time ( it occurs in different time intervals) forced to re-login as a live user which kills the installation program and forces me to re-start the installation process
I have a 80GB HDD on which I have installed Ubuntu10.04. I have about 45GB space remaining. I am trying to install Fedora13. I create : 2GB / partition - 2.4GB swap partition. I want to create 6GB /usr partition and it says not enough disk space? Why is it giving that message?
Below you'll see that my home server is currently maxed with something hidden.I noticed that my machine was maxed so i ran a du on / to see where the issue was happening. I freed up 6gbs so far and ~ciaranw keeps eating up any free disk space. But when i look to see what in the folder could be doing this, i get nothing back that accounts for the currently 19gbs thereI've been a long time user of forums but never found the need to actually post seeing as my problem was usually covered, this problem has stumped my googling prowess
[root@mordothebabyeater home]# df / Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
Some thing is using up a huge amount of my disk space about 10G and I can not determine what it is. When I look at my disk usage in system monitor it say I have used about 25G and when I scan the directory in disk usage analyzer the entire file system used is 15G.
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.
I installed the live CD version of fedora (dual boot with vista) on my laptop. After I connected to the internet the updates downloaded and all went well. however when i restarted at the boot screen I found two instances of fedora such as
Fedora(220.127.116.11-159.fc10.i686) Fedora(18.104.22.168-117.fc10.i686) Other
The "other" is vista. I am wondering if this is OK or whether I have two fedora. If so i would like to remove one of them to save disk space.
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"?
I'm running into a problem where my system is running out of disk space on the root partition, but I can't figure out where the runaway usage is. I've had a stable system for a couple of years now, and it just ran out of space. I cleaned some files up to get the system workable again, but can't find the big usage area, and I'm getting conflicting results.For example, when I do a df it says I'm using 44GB out of 58 GB:
Code: [root@Zion ~]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
df -h [URL] I did the following command to find everything is in /usr or /var, then tracked it down to /usr/lib and /usr/share as the main offenders, but out of all the directories none are more than 1mb or so.
du -sh /* | sort -gr | head -n 5
I tried to uninstall firefox, which is what got me in this mess in the first place, the log claims it will remove ~240 mb but failes on a "E: Write error - write (28 No space left on device)" [URL] If I could juggle something onto an external hard drive so I can uninstall firefox I would be out of the wood. Failing that I believe a new install is in order.
I'm running out of space in wubi. Online wubi help didn't help much since they suggest creating extra virtual disk space(similar to having a diffrent partition i guess) .None of them speak about increasing the size of /root disk space(or root.disk). I store all files in space shared with windows or external disk and use ubuntu only to install and use softwares and browsing. So how do increase the available space for installing more softwares?
Until now I have just formated the disks, but it's frustrating since I need the files on the disk and I bet there's an easier way out. I tried to physically delete the .trash folder in the flash disk but that didn't work either. So, what do I do?
I got the Hp 2133 mini notebook not to long ago maybe back in april. But they got a linux instead of Windows. I have yet to save anything on the computer, but everytime i logged on, i was usuing up disk space. Now I cant even log on and it gives me the message GDM Could not write to your authorization. Im sure i am not the first to receive this message. I dont know what to do. Its a Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. I tried entering commands that ive seen on here that helped others. But its not working for me. I havent been able to use the laptop since may.
