I tried to compile the kernel of Fedora 2 - a task that seems to require som free space on the harddrive. It stopped halfway though the compilation complaining about no more free space. I ran df and yes, 0 kb free on the /-partition. I tried removing a program using "yum remove xxx", but df still showed 0 kb free! I then tried to manually removing some files from the partition - still no free space.
Then I tried to restart my computer. Fedora seems to start fine, but it won't start Gnome - all I get is the login prompt (in text-mode) for a few seconds, then the monitor turns blank a few seconds and I see the prompt again... So it continues for a minute or two, until I'm told that X couldn't start - because of no free space I guess. When X finally gives up I can log in in text mode. Running df here still shows no free space.
What did I do wrong?
-it is actually the second time I've done this - the first time I reinstalled Fedora - I don't wan't to do that again.
