    changing partition mounts.


    So installing Slack (10.2) I partitioned my hd into 3 partitions, a swap, / , and /usr/local

    I have 5gb to / and 7gb to /usr/local thinking that /usr/local is where most of my stuff would end up going that I installed.

    yeah, wrroong.. my /home ate up all the space (in less then 2 weeks) and now I have 203mb free on /

    and only 125mb used on /usr/local

    so.. how do YOU think I should go about fixing it..? I really, really would prefer to not re-install everything and partition it all away..


    so.. seems to reason I should copy /usr/local over to / and then mount /home to my other partition..

    only problem? I dont know how to do this..

    id love some help, no one on irc helps at all.. thanks

    backup the stuff from /usr/local and turn it into /home

    just edit your /etc/fstab and move your data around, making sure you dont lose any.
