Software :: Debian's And Debian Based Distros With Disk Space - Burn Video On Hard Drive

Aug 13, 2010

Debian and debian based distros issue has a issue that has come to make it self aware to me when I was trying to burn a video on my hard drive with braseo and it won't let me burn more than 4.4 gigs to a dvd with 4.7 gigs of free space even a file that is over the 4.4 gig limit by a megabyte with windows i didn't have this problem. One more thing I have 16 gig flash drive and on debian and debian based distros i can only use 13.1 gigs of it but on fedora I can use all 16 gigs.

Debian :: Hard Drive Space For Debian And GUI?

Feb 22, 2010

How much should I consider allocating if I wanted to go a bit beyond a "Live CD" experience but not quite as far as making it my A-1 Linux? My first experience with Linux (or Unix) and GUI together was LinuxPPC on a 603e Mac clone. That was on an 8GB drive (that used to call a RAID server its home, incidentally). Then I had OS X, versions 10.1 and 10.2 on a G3 iMac (40GB boot drive), followed by OS X 10.3 Jaguar on a G4 Dual 1.25 MDD. The power supply died on that -- a $300 item when you can find one with the right pinouts.

In x86 land, on this Lenovo M55p (80gb boot, 1GB RAM, Windows XP Pro SP3 as the primary installed OS), I've sampled GNOME and KDE thanks to Wubi installs that were 15Gb and 25Gb, respectively. I also have an IBM Thinkpad T54 (1.25GB RAM, also 80GB boot) onto which I've installed Ubuntu 9.04.

I understand that Debian has no Wubi counterpart; that it runs strictly on X-ready file systems (Ext2, Ext3 come to mind as examples with which I am vaguely familiar). I have also heard, often enough to start believing it, that Ubuntu and its K & X variants are derived from Debian. I get the impression, however, that for a decent install of it, somewhat more than 15 or 25 GB may be required.

Debian :: Determine Amount Of Unused Hard Disk Space?

Jan 1, 2011

I am using LVM2 and have shrinked my /home partition and extended my / partition but I'm not sure if I used all the free space when growing my / partition. How can I find out? I prefer using the terminal if there is a graphical way to do this but I would like to know both ways if there are two ways.

Debian :: Squeeze Will Not Show Free And Used Disk Space On EXT4 Drive

Feb 23, 2011

This weekend, I installed Debian Squeeze on my server. I've formatted all the hard disks to EXT4, and I'm using kernel version 2.6.32-686-bigmem.When I tried to install the program saidar, it surprised me why it does not show my hard drives under 'mountpoint' [URL] <-- Saidar screenshot) as I could when I ran with Debian Lenny with the same kernel, but where the hard drives were formatted in EXT3. My laptop which has Ubuntu 10.04 as OS and the hard drive is formatted in EXT4 can easily show the hard drive in saidar.
I also tried to install PHP SysInfo on the Debian computer, but it does not bother to show anything on the hard disks

I tried to check fstab file and I can see that Debian uses UUID to identify the hard drives, but I've tried to change it to something with /dev/sdx, but it did not help either.[URL] (fstab file)

I know that Debian squeeze is very new, but it would be nice if someone could give me a hint what might be wrong, because I am a little tired of all time to use 'du-hs' command To find out how much space is spent on the various drives, since the command is a little slow, since hard disks are well filled.

Ubuntu Installation :: Have Multiple Distros On One Hard Disk

Sep 12, 2010

I know it's possible to to have multiple distros on one hard disk, and set it up so you can just have one /home partition and use it for all of the distros on that system. My question is, how efficient is that? Does it bloat the /home out with a whole bunch of stuff that might slow a particular distro down because it's filled with stuff from another? (I.e configs). And let's say I have two distros that are of different bases, say ubuntu and arch, does this make a difference? I know obviously that my personal files will all be accessible and not matter which distro they are being read from, but I'm talking more about the hidden stuff.

General :: Burn A Video-taped Sitting To A DVD Needing Almost 7GB Of Space

Jun 17, 2011

I was finally able to upload a video of my uncle speaking about his time on Iwo Jima. The problem is that it uses almost 7 GB of space. When I try to burn a DVD, there is not enough room. I don't know how to "split" it. Is there such a thing as a 7GB DVD? I have looked and only computers pop up when I google it. If not, what can I do?

Debian :: Dev SDA1 Causes Low Disk Space

Jun 28, 2010

My problem: 1GB-capacity dev SDA1 got filled up to 100% and made system unusable in less than one month. No downloads or updates were made during this period of time. I don't know which files/programs would be safe to delete since it all seem to be system files.

Here is a screen-shot that might shed some light on what is happening

Debian :: : Get Back Disk Space Warning?

Jul 25, 2011

I have made two partitions / and /home . / is where all the packages and other stuff lives and /home is where user i.e. my data lives. I am sure everybody knows the 'disk space is less' warning dialog box when either we install too many packages or when we download many things. Now the last time it happened by mistake I clicked on do not show more warnings. Now I want to have that warning dialog box back. looked at System > Preferences submenu as well as System > Administration but have not been able to find any info. on the same.

It is about 65MB.I pack it back together: 1.7MB.btw: if i do ls -hl i always get 4.0K . To check the size of directories i need to use a filemanager. That sucks. A tip?

Debian Configuration :: Missing Disk Space / Get It Back?

Feb 19, 2010

I seem to have a major discrepancy between what df reports and what du reports. df tells me that I am using 20G, but I am only able to find 9.5G using du. What follows are the ls -l of root, a df of my system, and the du for every directory in root that is not a symbolic link, mnt, or proc. I would appreciate any suggestions on where to look for the remaining 10.5G that seems to have disappeared.
I am running under VM Player code...

I downloaded peppermintos as a replacement for ubuntu on my laptop. Now i can't burn it to a dvd. I'm using GnomeBaker and I get " /dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 0". Is there a way to fix this, or even better, a way to run the iso straight from the hard drive.

Debian :: OS'es On Second Hard-disk Don't Boot?

Aug 21, 2010

I installed an OS on the second hard-disk/partition3 (/dev/sdb3; OS was FreeBSD). Added the entry and when i boot: nothing. I choose the OS from grub's menu, the list of choices vanishes, the background image stays, and there it hangs. It hangs until i hit: ctrl+alt+backspace. I have thought: to hell with it, and installed Debian/Lenny. Same problem (OH!).

I also installed the boot-loader to the second disk (/dev/sdb), hit F11 after the BIOS-screen and chosen the second hard-disk to boot from: a similar problem. It hangs, and the keyboard is "dead". I am clueless what to check for (i checked the general culprits, but with UUID its all a bit of a mess. I would say it looks good, but wouldn't bet on it) Anyone ever heard of something like that? Without error message its not easy to use the amazing Google. I do a bit of grub-troubleshooting, usually it works, but usually i get error-messages.

I made two threads about it, in case they contain useful info, here they are: ... sd-827059/

Ubuntu :: Parition Hard Drive Without Having Burn A Gparted Live Cd?

Jul 22, 2010

I decided I'm going to go back to a dual boot to see if I can get some of the slackware issues resolved on my laptop; its ubuntu only at the moment due to wireless problems. I've only got one hard drive so I can't simply unmount and repartition from gparted, I've lost all of my random linux live cds, and can't find a spare blank optical disc. Is there a way to boot from directly from the iso or from a flash drive or something?

Debian Hardware :: Cannot Mount Second Hard Disk

Feb 21, 2016

I am running Debian testing (amd64, xfce) on my box where I have two sata hard disks.

I do not have any raid or fancy stuff; all the OS is on one hard disk and the second is mounted on boot and accessible as simple extra storage that I use for some backups.

Today, for the first time, I started to get some messages during the boot about some process (EMASK and DRDY) on my second hard disk.

The system boots, but I cannot access any more the 3 TB volume which is my second hard hard disk.

I do not know if it is a software of hardware problem (the hard disk are not old at all), so...where should I start from?

Debian Hardware :: How To Disable DMA For ATA Hard Disk

Jun 14, 2011

I have old hard disk with broken DMA. When linux boots, it tries to enable DMA, fails, tries again... It tries to enable DMA several times, then disables DMA and boots. But it tries to enable DMA for nearly 3-4 minutes. How can I say linux to not try to enable DMA for this hard disk? System is installed on another hard disk that works great. Old hard disk is used only for not frequently used data.

Debian Installation :: Hard Disk Thrashing With Squeeze?

Apr 22, 2010

Just loaded Squeeze (KDE) onto a partition on my desktop and am a bit alarmed by the disk thrashing thats going on? Damn light on constantly. if I didn't know better I'd think I was using Vista. Is this something to do with 'nepomukservices' that seems to be taking a fair amount of cpu time? Not used to KDE 4 so maybe this is normal.
