Hard drive filling up automatically
I have a knoppmyth box set up for recording off of the sattelite. It is running knoppix as the base operating system.
On my first install the log files did not auto rotate so I created a partition just for them so that the whole system didn't shut down when the log files filled up.
Now after 6 months or so of running the main partition is filling up again, I can't find what is being filled. My partitions are like so:
/dev/hda1 2392056 2264588 5956 100% /
/dev/hda3 33784544 135628 31932748 1% /cache
/dev/hda4 2682828 94104 2452444 4% /var/log
/dev/hdb1 153834852 43023364 102997072 30% /storage
hda1 is the partition I am worried about, as the whole machine comes to a halt when it gets full.
Do any of you have some tips that could tell me what is being written there all the time so I can stop it or devert it?
Thank you for your help.
