Re: Running Out of Space

Roger, your hard disk is partitioned into several partitions. It means
nothing that the disk is 200 gigabytes if you have a partition that is
200 megabytes that is overflowing. You must be more specific with your
information before you can be helped.

"df" from a console window is a big help. It will pinpoint the partition
that is overflowing. Any helpers will also need to know the filesystem
types for the various filesystems on the disk. (The file /etc/fstab is
helpful for garnering that information. It lists the disks mounted on
the machine at boot time and those which may be easily mounted at a later
time.) "du -s ." from a console window when you have performed a "cd" to
the overloaded partition's head, say "cd /var" if there is a separate 
partition for /var, can find where the "clog" might be.

You've been too parsimonious with information for any real help. Detailed
requests get resolved quickest because the information required is present.
