Howdy, I was hoping to find an answer to a problem that I have.
I was using kget to download a new distro .iso. a huge 4.4gb image that I thought was suppose to be going to my Desktop in /home. kget pops an error, saying download failed because my disk was full. Now my Vector partition won't boot because it says that my /tmp file is full. I have booted to another working partition and tried looking for the file but there is nothing in there that has any size to it. Where would one look for a failed kget download that is hogging all my free space on /?
I have searched the man on kget and it does not mention where the temp file is stored. This was my first time using kget and maybe my last. Thanks in advance.
so you can get onto the filesystem at some level? try running "du -xh --max-depth=1 /" that'll show you the size of all top level directories residing on that physical partition. if you want to go deeper, "du -xh --max-depth=1 /var" for example...
