whenever I try to download anything I get the error there's not enough space on my home partition; thus I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me how to increase its size? I'm using ubuntu via vmware workstation.Here is the output of df:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 254964 0 254964 0% /lib/init/rw varrun 254964 52 254912 1% /var/run
I have installed ubuntu on my second hd, the size of is 500 GB.The live Ubuntu cd installation have used only 250 GB, the rest remains as NTFS system. And now I do need more space on my home folder, I would like to convert the 250 GB NTFS to Linux system and add it to my home folder. But I don't know how. I have looked at Disk Utilities, I have not found this possibility.
I am runnin CentOS 5.4 on a machine wiht 2GB of ram. of that 2GB free -m shows that 1.8 is being used. I wanted to find out what was consumign the RAM. I came across .mozilla folder in every users home directory. I am thinkning, is this machine some kind of GUI that is consuming the ram?I did ps aux | grep gnome and ps aux | grep kde but that came up with nothing.rpm -qa | grep gnome showed lots of gnome python RPM's.I am using ssh to connect to the machine and can not log in locally to see since it is at a remote location. Is there any way of finding out if a GUI is running, if so how would I uninstall it?
i got low space left on my home folder .. i installed ubuntu and set home folder's size to 20 gbs and 70 gbs for my "/" partition , 2gbs for swap.Is there a way to increse those 20 gbs ? maybe take a lil from my "/" partition?
I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
When I am in the middle of reading a post in Akgregator and I decide I need larger characters, I press [Ctrl [+]] to increase font size. This increases the characters displayed but also displaces my vertical reading position so that I have to scroll to the text I have been reading.
As can be observed above, I have used almost 70% of the available partition space with only 1.7 GB remaining. I have plans to install Microsoft Office 2007 on Wine and I know that 1.7 GB is not enough for the installation. I don't mind reducing the size of my Windows partitions in order to increase the size of the root.
I have done it quite often. Inserted and run the computer from a live CD so that the hard drive is not mounted an changed the partitions. It worked on the old reiserfs when I wiped the windows partition on my laptop to increase the space, it worked on ext3 partitions. Now I resized the swap partition and reduced the NTFS partition on my desktop - no problem. But it does not increase the ext4 partition. No error message it just does not do it. I tried several times with the suggested maximal setting, with a custom setting, etc. It just does not change size. Just for interest I booted into Suse11.0 live CD and tried from there. There I get the answer cannot resize partition as the file system does not allow resizing. Is something wrong with the system or does the partitioner not work with ext4?
i have this directory with multiple images 'pics' and the size is 20mb, and i want to make a .zip or .rar package of this directory but with an increased size so the .zip/.rar file will be 100mb, and then when you extract it the file size is the original 20mb
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
I'm using CentOS 5.4 servers installed in a VMWare virtual machine with no X.Org server installed, so all access is via command line and the linux terminal. I use Shift-PgUp to view the scrollback buffer, but its size is very limited. How do I increase the size of the scrollback buffer?
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done: [URL]
I have 24" dual monitors with 1920x1080 resolution on both of them. Consequently the text appears so small. I use the following text-intensive applications frequently:
Web browser (Google Chrome) IDE (Komodo) Terminal (Gnome Terminal) Email (Thunderbird)
I can configure text size on IDE, Terminal and Email. But for Chrome, it is not a good idea to set proportional font size because often one wants to see the entire (not just proportional fonts) site to be zoomed. So I am asking: Is it possible to increase DPI in Ubuntu (much like on Windows) so as to increase the text size across all apps? OR Is it possible to set permanent 'zoom' in Google Chrome, using a third-party extension maybe?
i have to upload a signature image(in jpeg format) to fill a recruitment form which says file-size must be of between 10-20 kb......i have scanned image which is of 9.5 kb.....tried to edit in shotwell photo manager....tried some random things in Adjust and crop menu but my little changes didn't work, it always shortened the file size......as i don't know anything about Image editing can someone tell me how can i increase the file size (>=10kb) i also tried gnome-screenshot to take the screenshot of the image, but it also saved the new image smaller than 10kb....

When running the umount command like this as superuser: umount /dev/sda8. get the following message:umount: /home: device is busy.(In some cases useful info about processes that usethe device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
