Recently I started to run out of space on my root partition and after a quick look I realised it was mainly because my root partition had my /usr directory on it. So off I went and made a new partition, copied my old /usr files accross, updated /etc/fstab and hooray! It worked first time
Now the problem is that I didn't delete my old /usr files (a - I wanted to be able to fall back to my old settings and b I wouldn't have been allowed anyway). How can I delete the old files? I was toying with the idea of using an old Suse live eval cd (one of the linux distros that boots and runs from a cd) to remove the files from the partition.
Problem is I use SCSI and the driver disk for my controller (it's a little known about tekram job) isn't available (i.e. it doesn't exist!)
Can anyone lend a suggestion?
