Ubuntu Installation :: Extend Disk Space For 10.10?
Apr 26, 2011
I've 80G hard-disk with dual boot ( XP with 5.5G and Ubuntu 10.10 with 4.5G ). After recent updates there is only 1G of space left on Ubuntu.I've 3 more drives with around 25G left and want to extend Ubuntu by another 10G.How can I do that?
Is there any way to use unallocated space to extend a partition that isn't close to that partition? there is an image attached, I can extend /dev/sda2 but not /dev/sda1 ( the one that i want to) I used the live cd to run gparted.I had to move /dev/sda2 to to the right and then extend /dev/sda1
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?
I had initially created 10 GB ext3 partiton for my kubuntu 9.10 , but now space is almost full , I tried Gpartedbut it wont let me unmount my ext3 partition ?The error is posted below.I got windows 7 on another partition but its partition manager does not support ext3 so its useless ??shd i boot from live CD and then extend my partition or is there an easy way out , like using "parted" command line tool Could not unmount /dev/sda2The partition could not be unmounted from the following mount points:/Most likely other partitions are also mounted on these mount points. You are advised to unmount them manually.
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'.
I've added a second drive to a system and I need to extend the lvm and the filesystem to the second disk. Is there a way to do this online with centos 5.5? I specifically need extending the actual ext3 filesystem which seems to be the trick part.
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 attempted to upgrade to 11.04 but I get an error message that says I do not have enough disk space. I am dual booting ubuntu from an external hard drive. How do I alter my partition size to allow for the upgrade?
which is a surprise as I've found Ubuntu beyond my expectations on all the machines I've run it on.I'm trying to upgrade my old desktop from 9.04 to 9.10 (and then 10.04 - same as my laptop), and am running into this message at the start of the upgrade process:"Not enough free disk spaceThe upgrade is now aborted. The upgrade needs a total of 3109M free space on disk '/'. Please free at least an additional 1088M of disk space on '/'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'."I've done a bit of searching and have followed the leads I've found but am still stuck. I've emptied trash, cleared out old kernels etc but it hasn't got me there.
Running df -h gives this: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 7.8G 5.5G 2.0G 75% /
I am installing 10.10 on my PC. I have changed the hardware and the previous install was for a x64 I now have x32. I ran the live disk and have selected install. I am now on the partition page, (manual). I am happy with the concept of partitioning and which partition is which, but I can only change the linux partition. At the moment I have @60G NTFS, 1G swap and @18G Linux. I want to reduce linux partition to about 12G (which is fine I've done that) I now have free space. I want to increase the swap partition to 2G and the remainder to be added to the NTFS partition. However, I can't add any more disk space to the latter partitions. The Swap partition has the space bar available, but the increase is greyed out and on the NTFS partition, there is no option at all.
I wonder if this is possible to extend or regrow the Linux hard disk partition from 8 GB to 20 GB without losing the existing data on the partition ?at the moment this Ubuntu Linux is deployed on top of VMware and I've just regrow the hard drive from 8 GB into 20 GB but can't see the effect immediately.can anyone suggest how to do this without losing the data ?
I've tried installing UNR on a 1GB flash drive in the past, and on two occasions it completely broke due to lack of disk space. When I say broke, it was when I was trying to install or upgrade packages, it said it ran out of disk space, everything slowed right down, and in the end I had to restart. I was put into a recovery shell and after poking around for about 30 minutes, gave up. Then reinstalled.
Now my shiny new 4GB flash drive is split into two sections, one for documents (1.9GB) and one for the installation+persistency file (1.9GB). I went about updating the UNR system, adding software I need (some of which is quite big, anti-virus software, lyx etc), and quickly found the old warning message: disk space low. hastily make some free space (apt-get clean, delete a big firefox cache), and post this message. My questions:how do I find out how much disk space is left on this 1.9GB partition - specifically the persistency file? I've tried disk usage analyzer, also du -h, but can't really understand it. I want to be able to see ahead of time when I am short of disk space. I would like to switch to using XFCE instead of gnome for speed and disk space. Is this possible? What is the best way to switch, without risking maxing-out disk space and crippling the system again? is there are way to take a snapshot of the whole partition? I would like to back it up in case it goes haywire again. Would I just want to copy the persistency file, that's it?
I currenty run Ubuntu 9.10. When I was installing the OS I've probably just didn't pay an attention to this step when it asked me how much of free space to use for Ubuntu. Now it's using just 11 GB and I want it to use 100% of space of this partition. Installed it with Wubi (btw when installing using Wubi, can I just dump the Windows OS and run Linux itself or when I install it with Wubi the windows and linux are connected in any way?). What method should I use for 9.10?
This is actually my 1st day of using Linux. Before that over 15 year Windows user (since Windows 3.1x). So far I love it much more thn Windows.
well I went to wubi-installer, and installed Ubuntu, and I love it, I don't want to go back to windows 7, but anyways, I set Ubuntu to my D: Drive, (200GB Space) and I installed Steam (Steampowered.com) to get my games on Ubuntu. I installed all of my games, but here is a big problem, I can't figure out how to use more than 30GB on Ubuntu, it just doesn't work. I got GParted, and the D: drive is set to 195 GB (200, but Ubuntu used 5GB)
I think im getting this error because I didnt allocate enough space to the Ubuntu partition when I installed it. How do I allocate more space to the Ubuntu partition? If this is not possible, is it possible to install 10.04 from my Windows?
I am trying to upgrade my ubuntu distribution from 9.10 to 10.04 using update-manager. I have only 2G free in my / partition, and update-manager complains saying it needs 4G free in the / partition to upgrade.
I presume the space is needed to store downloaded packages. Is there any way I can change the download directory to some other partition (i have plenty of space in other partitions)?
i was using vista in my laptop, recently installed ubuntu in another drive partition which is 69 GB. but during ubuntu installation i gave only 16GB to ubuntu from this drive. i guess the remaining 69 GB - 16 GB = 53 GB is unused space now.. now how can i allocate all 69GB in that drive to ubuntu ?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on Windows 7 using Wubi. Then upgraded it to 10.10 and KDE. Initially while installing I alloted only a small amount of disk space. Now I need more space for Ubuntu. How can I do it without disturbing the current setup and configurations of both Windows and Ubuntu.
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 installed Ubuntu 9.10 from Windows 7 and given 17GB default space for Ubuntu. I installed different programs and ...now I ran out of disk space when I tried to install Oracle XE. I tried GParted from Live CD to allocate the space, but it shows the complete partition as single partition for Windows and Ubuntu of which I could not able to allocate the specific space to Ubuntu.I don't want to reinstall the Ubuntu again as there's a lot of office work has been done.
