I've followed the guide at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1122670
Unmounting all but system partitions,
I've run apt-get-clean and -autoclean along with --autoremove, emptied
trash in root and home and after I removed old kernels and headers I've
reduced / by 4%.
There are no large or numerous log files, although I did delete the
oldest ones in each group.
I did install doodle yesterday, which created a 20G directory in /var/lib.
As an experiment I moved that folder to another hd but the size of /
wasn't reduced, it's still 96% full! - 28G total 26G used 1.1G
available. When I tried to put it back there wasn't enough room.
Remaining directories are at or < 1%.
Analyzing the file system with disk usage analyzer (gksudo boabab) still
reports root as 100% full (after doing the above steps) and the size as
13.5G, home as 62.3% full - 8.4G, /usr as 27.5% at 3.7G and /var - 4,5%
- 617.1 MB.
df -Th | sort says:
/dev/sda1 ext3 28G 26G 1.1G 96% /
/dev/sda7 ext4 51G 13G 36G 27% /home
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
none devtmpfs 4.0G 704K 4.0G 1% /dev
none tmpfs 4.0G 0 4.0G 0% /var/lock
none tmpfs 4.0G 432K 4.0G 1% /var/run
none tmpfs 4.0G 788K 4.0G 1% /dev/shm
Is there something else I'm missing that I may be able to do to get the
percentage down or is my / partition just too small?
