i'm not too sure how to find out exactly how much free space is left. if i check the hard drives in the hardware browser i get the sizes of the partitions but not how much space is left.
i can use the file browser and right click on the folders and click properties, a few report 0 bytes free (/bin /boot /etc /initrd /tmp /var /usr there may be others!)
the only thing i can think of is that i was using gyum to update and i think that the packages are downloaded to the hard drive.
do you know where?
i guess i can delete them to clean up some space
do you know of any other way to create some space. i don't want to delete things willy nilly
thank you both for replying
