boot with a live cd of Ubuntu and use the partition manager to move
more space to your root partition.

system ->administration -> partition manger

Make sure you back up your data before doing this.

As long as you do not delete any partition you should be ok and not
get any errors

I have been using this method over the last few days to get more space
in my /home and it worked really well
