    Help with disk space


    I let mdk 10 set up my 40 Gb hd

    /dev/hdb1 / ext3 5.8Gb

    /dev/hdb5 swap 494Mb

    /dev/hdb6 /home ext2 38Gb

    Problem is I'm up to 98% on /

    I need to give more space to /

    I have a secon hd that I can use part of.

    What can I do?

    Ta.

    How big is the second HD? You can move a dir like /usr, /opt or /var (whichever is bigger) to the other HD and just mount it at boot.

    Not a lot!

    Reintalled Gentoo and Mandrake so plenty of room now.
