2010.1 Upgrade: Not enough space? [solved]

Recommended Posts

Good morning... afternoon... evening...!

 

I have the following partitions:

 

/home 85GB

 

/ 7.8GB

 

swap 3.8 GB

 

/media/hd 135 GB

 

I ran the upgrade for 2010.1 and IIRC the install failed due to not enough space in /usr/bin

 

I took the default URPMI folder to save the install files.

 

New update packages now also fail. Apparently not enough space on /.

 

Where did I go wrong, and how can I fix it.................?

 

 

As always, thanks for the help.

Can you tell us how much free space you have on / and also if you attempted to copy the CD/DVD contents to the hard disk during the installation/upgrade process? If so, maybe don't copy it so that you have the free space.

 

If not, then please explain a little more. I would expect though if your / is full, you'll have to move your data off the machine and then recreate your partitions from scratch making / bigger this time, and then copy your data back later - this will be everything you have under /home or anywhere else you store stuff.

More info:

 

AFIK did not copy CD/DVD to disk, just ran the update from "New Updates Are Available" pop up. It suggested some install files be copied to URPMI folder.

 

/ Size: 7.8GB Used: 7.1 GB Open: 382m Use: 95%

 

/home Size: 85GB Used: 2.4GB Open: 83GB Use: 3%

 

/media/hd Size: 136GB Used: 97GB Open: 39GB Use: 72%

 

 

Yes / is full. Not sure how it got that way. I really don't have much data on the machine.

 

Since I am as my username suggests, I'm a little lost on the solution.

 

sda5 = / 7.7GB

sda7 = /home 85GB

 

Resize sda7 smaller and resize sda5 larger from MCC Manage Disk Partitions, after having move the folders under /home to network storage I have available.

 

?

 

Thanks.

Open a terminal and (as root) run this command and post the output here

cd /; du -ks * | sort -nr | cut -f2 | head -15 | xargs -d '\n' du -sh

that should tell us where and why it is full.

It appears to be all of the rpms you have saved while upgrading. You don't need to keep them, unless you want to install them on another system without downloading them again. You can check with (as root)

du /var/cache/urpmi

and you can remove them with (as root)

urpmi --clean

Now you can check all of /var including the logs with (as root)

cd /var; du -ks * | sort -nr | cut -f2 | head -10 | xargs -d '\n' du -sh

Please let us know if that helps.

OK, you can go click on your Menu button > Install and Remove Software > Options > and check the 'Clear download cache after successful install'. This will prevent it from happening again.

 

I would also suggest that the next time you install a system that you make your / partition at least 9.5 to 10 GBs. :)

 

I'll mark this as solved.
