I only had 24 MB left on my root partition. I created a new partition with GParted. I attempted to move /usr to /media/usr2 with this command:
tar cfp - . | ( cd /mnt/new_part ; tar xpf - )
I think it moved things completely.
I inserted a listing into /etc/fstab for the new partition to be /usr.
I deleted /usr from the computer. I recreated the folder.
Afterwards, I rebooted.
I have an abnormal startup session.
The computer is unable to automatically start GDM, and it throws me into the terminal.
I am able to load gdm and login to a gnome desktop. The programs seem to be in accordance, but I am aware something went wrong with the transfer of /usr to a new partition. I am seeing a few new errors messages. I don't think they really tip me off as to how to fix this issue.
Is there something I am missing here?
I don't have the old /usr, so I can't tell if there are differences.
Was the command I used to move things bad?
