    drive full?


    Hey, I am getting a message there is no space left in root, but when I go to examine drive (fedora 13) it says "used 47.6GB available 57.4 GB" and I know the partition is about 100+ GB. Why does it say I am full, and how do I fix this?

    Well, according to this, root is mounted on a 50 GB partition, of which 43 GB is used. (A lot for root! My root partition only has 5.5 GB used with a full KDE install right now.)

    If you've been downloading a lot of packages, you can clean the cache out with
    Code:
    su -c 'yum clean all'
    A handy program for looking at what's taking up space is ncdu. Should be in the repos.

    I don't understand where my other 50 GB are. I should have about 110GB to NTFS for WIN7 and about 110 to Fedora13.

    You also have 56GB for /home which might be where the rest of your space is?

    Anyway when a drive fills up like this it is often the logs. Have a look in /var/log/ to see what is going on with your logs.

    run

    cd /var/log
    du -h

    to see how big things are
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
