in terminal use df -h

This should show you where your largest partition is and where it's mounted.

Make a directory there (mkdir directory_name) and send files to that location

Hello BigEmpty,

Please don't start more then one thread for the same subject, you'll only confuse yourself and users trying to help you.

Stick to you original thread please.

Kind regards,

Eric

Now I'm confused. Someone told me to ask one question per thread. The other thread I have was about torrent. Sorry about that.

No reason to be confused.

In the original thread you said that you cannot save a torrent to Desktop because lack of space. In this thread you state the same, no space in Desktop. To me those two are related don't you think?

Kind regards,

Eric

How do I know the directory name? Here's the directory:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
tmpfs 759M 2.0M 757M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/volatile
tmpfs 759M 2.0M 757M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/volatile
tmpfs 759M 0 759M 0% /lib/init/rw
varrun 759M 220K 759M 1% /var/run
varlock 759M 0 759M 0% /var/lock
udev 759M 2.9M 756M 1% /dev
tmpfs 759M 136K 759M 1% /dev/shm
rootfs 759M 759M 0 100% /
/dev/scd0 699M 699M 0 100% /cdrom
/dev/loop0 676M 676M 0 100% /rofs
tmpfs 759M 32M 727M 5% /tmp
/dev/sde6 134G 2.2G 125G 2% /media/disk
/dev/sde1 4.7G 2.5G 2.0G 56% /media/disk-1

Thanks!

Youre right. What do you say we forget about the torrents, I think I have that one figured out.

Thanks!

did you install ubuntu or are you using a live cd?

/media/disk is your largest partition at 134 GB

The mountpoint (Mounted On) is the directory to go to, so:
in a terminal:
Code:
cd /media/disk
will take you to the large partition you have (134Gb). If you want to make a directory there then type the command posted by bret381:
Code:
mkdir yourdirname
Next you can save you documents there. But something needs to be done because you'll encounter a lot of problems in the near future. If you take a look at your output from the df command you'll notice that your rootfs is at 100% which is the cause of all your 'saving' problems.

Also if you put output from a command here in a post then please put it between the code tags (#) in the icon bar of the post so that it keeps its formatting which is easier to read.

Can you type in a terminal the following and put the output here (between code tags)
Code:
ls /
and
Code:
du -h /
Kind regards,

Eric

Ok, glad we got that solved. It will be a lot easier to concentrate on one thread in order to solve your problem. BTW, bret381 might be onto something. Are you indeed running from LiveCD?

Kind regards,

Eric

No. I have Ubuntu 8.10 installed.
I am working on your code tags right now. the second commmand gave me a long list.

Kind regards,

Hope that helps.
Oh and by the way. I was able to restore the Windows XP by wiping out the whole drive and starting over. However, I cant connect to the internet. So I came back here and voila! I connected to Mozilla. Although I am in liveCD now I am considering installing Ubuntu. I really like this Linux.
Thanks!

Hi,

So there's your problem, you're running LiveCD. Install Ubuntu to harddisk and it'll solve your problems.

Kind regards,

Eric

That's also a problem. I installed and everything. But everything I setup gets lost because when I reboot, I end up in those same messages even with the disk not in the tray.

it sounds to me that if you are indeed installing linux, you are not providing it adequate space on a hard drive partition to install.

I would run windows disk defrag and then resize your windows partition by about 50 GB and install linux on that 50 GB partition.
