Ubuntu :: Running Out Of Space , Extend Current Ext3 Partion?
Feb 16, 2010
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.
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 have been missing disc space in my / partion. Was 20Go.I deleted a unsed partition and then increase my / partition to 133 Go.Did this in yast and can see that the partition has this size. But when I restart my suse, the size of the partition remains to 20Go.
I have read a couple of threads that deals with resize partion and then create new lvm partion.That is not what I want to do! I have resized my partion from 275 GB to 150 GB. the reason for this was hoping for more space to be able to create a normal partion with cfdisk but that does not seem to work. I have free space, but how can I use it to create room for a new ordinary partion.when the default partion layout for fedora/centos is to fill the whole space up whether you use it or not?
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
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 want to run gparted off the cd so that I can extend the ubuntu partition of my computer...I hdownloaded the gparted iso file and burnt it onto a CD...but how do i run the software?.... there appears to be 3 folders on the cd (isolinux, live and syslinux) and two other files 'copying' and 'g-parted live version' - these two are both text files...
I'm still quite new on linux .. so please accept my question, even if I'm asking something stupid The fact is that I created some months ago a partition of 50 Gb to store my data and I used an ext3 filesystem with journal .. and the journal was about 1 Gb I thinkNow after a few months of usage I moved all my data to a new device and I noticed thapartition was completly emptied, in fact there was still about 10 Gb occupied.All data was moved away, so I think this might be the journal.
Now a few questions:1) Is it normal for a journal to occupy 1/5 of a device? 2) Is there a command or another way to free up the space occupied by the journal?3) Is there a better option in order of filesystem? Maybe it's better to use another one?I usually use ext3 for the system partition and for data storage partition,then I have a partition into where I store clonezilla images for backup purposesand I decided to use reiserfs for it in order to have more space available,even because it's always unmounted and I access onto it only for backup activities
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 with wubi and i have been enjoying my Ubuntu experience a lot. I installed quite a bit of programs and spent a couple hours customizing my machine. The problem is im running out of disc space. Any ideas on how i can add more space. I have gparted but i dont know where to move the free space to because wubi installed it.

Using a small hard drive (180 GB) dual booting windows XP for gaming and Ubuntu 9.10 for my other stuff during install I didnt know how much of each partition i would use, so i did 50-50 1 for ext3 and one for NTFSHowever after awhile it seems I have run out of space on my NTFS and have tons of unused space on my ext3.What I am wanting to do is shrink some of that ext3 down and give it it NTFS, I did a little searching and found a couple of old posts but I was a little sketchey on em. Simply looking for some personal Methods or Tools you have used and a starting point of how to use them.
I have just purchased a 2TB drive for my server and I was trying to get an idea of the differences between these file systems or other file systems out there. What is the amount of space after formatting for ext4, ext3, and ntfs?
I would like to know how I stop the current window I am on following me when I switch workspace.for example, I have this web browser open whilst I am typing this, I press Ctrl+. (my shortcut to take me to the workspace to the right), and instead of taking me to what was a nice empty workspace on the right, it sweeps this web browser to it as well.I can't find a way to configure this to my liking, can anyone help?
What is the current state of ATI graphics card support under linux? Up until a few years ago, nvidia had much better (albeit proprietary) drivers than ATI. Has this situation changed, now that AMD has owned ATI for a while now? Are open source drivers any better?
Is there any sure-fire way to identify whether the current Ubuntu system is running in Live mode or not? I want to distinguish between Live mode and running from installed HD, and do some processing in boot up script. FYI, in grml, the /etc/grml_cd file only exit in Live mode file system; no such file if running from installed HD.
A few days ago, I got a message that stated I had zero bytes of disk space left.Odd, I thought, but I had been doing video transcribing and thought that may be the issue.I moved a video (4 GB) off the hard drive to an external drive and then went about my business.This morning, I got the message again. I enclosed a screen shot. I moved a few more items off my hard drive - but then was soon out of space again. (Less than an hour later.)I logged in as root and poked around. I noticed that /var/archives had almost 60 GB of data in .tar.gz files.I moved them off to an external drive and am okay for now.
I have a dual boot system that only has about 6.5 GB of total file space for Ubuntu on the disk. Recently I upgraded to 11.04, and have had problems logging on and in downloading and installing programs. Occasionally I get messages that say available memory [edit: I meant disk space, not memory] is too low.
I see from the disk analyzer that a folder called tmp is very large. Can that file be safely deleted? Anything else to clean up and scavenge more space?
In Fedora 13 64 bit, Ctrl+C does not terminate the running programing in terminal window but in Unbuntu this shortcut key works. If I hit Ctrl+Z, this makes the running program run in background which is something I definitely dont want. what is the shortcut for terminating a program in terminal window? What is the shortcut key for canceling the command I have typed but not run yet no matter where the cursor is in the command ? Ctrl+U works but only if cursor is at the last character of the command.
I've been searching the web on this, followed up hints and tips (e.g. URL...) but with no results.I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on 3 disk configuration: 1: 80GB SSD running root with /home mounted to the next disk 2: 250GB HDD where /home lives 3: 250GB backup of disk 2
My system is complaining since just now with:The volume "file system root' has only 640MB od disk space left
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto my laptop and then upgraded it to Ubuntu 10.4. I've added some software packages along the way, such as MythTV and several smaller apps, but have not gone crazy in adding apps. I have a 160GB hard drive.I ran out of disk space recording a World Cup game and was surprised. I deleted all of the MythTV recordings and ran Computer Janitor and now I have only about 50GB of free space! It is not my primary computer, so I don't have a bunch of videos, music, pr pictures on it.
I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.4 to a USB flash drive and it has only 3.7GB occupied on the drive.Any recommendations of why I have over 100GB on the hard drive and any cures on how to clear out unneeded files?
I'm a little puzzled as to why I'm getting a warning about running out of disk space. It seems others have similar issues but with little resolvI received a warning about how I have little disk space remaining. I got the message when writing files to my /home directory.The output of df -h is:
Code: Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 7.4G 5.9G 1.1G 85% /
