CentOS 5 :: Increased Disk Space Not Reflected

May 11, 2011

I am running Centos 5.5 in vmware and recently had to increase my disk space from 20GB to 40GB. I understand that in linux, the increased disk space is not automatically reflected but as I am new to this topic, I am not sure how I can go about doing this. how to see what's the available space and how I can partition(?) this.

For your reference:

[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 42.9 GB, 42949672960 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 5221 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

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.

General :: CentOS 5 - Available Disk Space Always 0 Percent

Jun 16, 2011

I am running centos 5. So far, it gives no problem but just yesterday, when it reported "no free space" for file writing, I try to remove some file as usual. Unfortunately this time no matter how much files I had deleted, it just keep showing no available space for doing so.

Result from df:
[root@LSMSVR ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
1.2G 269M 879M 24% /
/dev/hda6 4.8G 138M 4.4G 4% /tmp

/dev/hda1 99M 15M 80M 16% /boot
tmpfs 180M 0 180M 0% /dev/shm
ow to recover the lost space in /home?

CentOS 5 :: Any Known Errors On Allocating Disk Space Using Rsync?

Mar 13, 2009

Need to know if there are any known errors allocating disk space using rsync. I have recently setup a small file backup server (2 500GB drives) running Centos 5.2, with a rsync daemon (via xinetd). However I have noticed that after about a week of usage, if I reboot, then the disk that rsync uses, has a lot of multiply claimed blocks and inode errors, such that I have to run fsck multiple times to fix. This has happened a couple of times now so I don't think that its random.

CentOS 5 :: Df Not Showing Disk Space After Logical Volume Expansion / Fix It?

Jun 5, 2009

I've added a new LUN to my Centos 5.2 server using Powerpath and have added it to an ext3 logical volume. I extended the logical volume using lvextend and the new space shows up correctly in lvdisplay. What I'm having problems with is getting Centos to see the new disk space (df -h shows 500GB, not 600GB as expected). I've tried running a resize2fs on the new volume but it tells me that "the filesystem is already n blocks long. Nothing to do". Does any one know where I'm going wrong? If possible I'd like to sort this without a reboot.

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:

Hardware :: Reduced Disk Space / Use The Total Amount Of Space?

Aug 25, 2009

OS: RHEL AS 5 64-bit

HDD:300 GB Hardware mirror (HP blade bl460c)

While installing OS, in partition window after OS file system structure I've left 277 GB. But after installation it shows Size - 255GB and available disk space is 242 GB.

Isn't it weired? How can I use the total amount of space in Linux? I need the whole 277GB exactly. What should be my workaround?

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"?

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Space - Failes On A "E: Write Error - Write (28 No Space Left On Device)"

Jan 4, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Resize Entire /root (root.disk) Virtual Disk Space?

Jan 25, 2011

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?

Networking :: IFConfig Changes Not Reflected In GUI

Dec 25, 2008

I have seen this in fedora 8/9 systems :- when I configure the eth0 card and give it a ip address using the ifconfig command from the terminal window and then check out the card from the network config GUI subsequently, it doesnot reflect the ip address as configured through the ifconfig command. However, the ifconfig command continues to show the new ip address as usual. If I need to change the ip address of the eth0 interface which should be the prefered mechanism - the ifconfig command or the GUI. Ofcourse I understand that, for the ifconfig command mechanism a line would have to be added to the rc. Local file so that the change is effective on every subsequent bootup.

OpenSUSE Install :: Repository Changes Not Being Reflected On The .changes Files?

Ubuntu Networking :: Host File Changes Not Reflected In Web Browser

I've found that changes configured in my hosts file are not being reflected in my web browsers, but it is in the shell. For example... If I put the following in my /etc/hosts file

Code: 123.456.789.000 server server.dom.com I get a successful response from running ping in the shell

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. I have to make regular changes to my hosts file to test services, so this is quite a pain.

Networking :: Changes To 70-persistent-net.rules Not Reflected In Ifconfig Until Reboot?

Jun 18, 2010

I am working on a Fedora 13 iso that will be used on some of the PC's at my work, the computers will have a varying amount of Ethernet ports, at least two onboard and up to 6 external. In order to ensure that the same physical port on the back of the computer is always used for the internet connection I have written a script to rearrange the contents of /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. The script ensures that the two Ethernet ports on the motherboard are listed as eth0 and eth1, without it they could end up as any port in the eth0-7 range.

The script works well however when its run I need to reboot the PC for the ifconfig to load the correct port as eth0/eth1. I have tried placing calls to my function through the rc.sysinit/rc.5d/rc.local and so on however nothing seems to work.Is there a way to make ifconfig check the mac/eth configuration files for changes (There appears to no longer be an ifprobe command which sounds like what I need). Alternatively is there somewhere I can place the script after udev has created the persistent-net.rules but before anything else loads the information. I have tried chkconfig --level 2345 network off and loading the service later but it still uses the wrong information, only a reboot seems to get it to work

Programming :: Scalar Arguments - Changes Reflected In Calling Program

Dec 3, 2010

(For function arguments): Scalar arguments are passed by value, which means that a copy of the argument is made for processing in the function, and changes to the argument in the function won't be reflected back to the calling program. Objects though, are passed by reference: any changes to them in the function are reflected in the calling program. What sense does this make? Why have they done this?

Ubuntu :: Get More Disk Space For U11.04?

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 (with wubi) and selected that I wanted 10 GB of disk space for Ubuntu.

There are two things I want to do now, so two questions:

1. How do I delete Windows OS from my computer? It's a new computer so I am sure I want to delete and I did not download anything but a few things on it.

2. After I do that, how do I set Ubuntu so that it's not still at 10 GB of disk space.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Not Enough Disk Space

Jun 22, 2011

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)?
