As soon as i go to open my user_name, it sets up that message.

It says... Filestystem and lists all my information.

It says "i'm fucked" bc it's "full"
/dev/hdb1 5.8gb size, used 5.8g, Avail 0, Use 100% mounted on /
/dev/hdb6 69g size, used 6g, avail 63g, use 9%
/dev/hda1 9.4g size, used 129m, avail 8.8g, use 2%

This would explain why it's "out of disk space" however, i do'nt store anything on there, And i didn't have this problem before...

Is there a way to re-size the partition without erasing it? obviously / is important, Can i use that 10gb hard drive, format it and set it just for / shared with what it has? the 10gb is empty.

Congratulations, you've got your / partition full. Try wiping /tmp/* and maybe creating dedicated partiotions for /var and /tmp .

lol my mistake for setting the partition so small i guess.

Well, since my 10gb was empty. I went into the partition software or wahtever that linux has. and unmounted the 10gb hard drive. than mounted it at /tmp and it asked to format than copy all files over.

So i did exactly that.

But, now it says /tmp is not accessible. I can't obviously unmount / or resize it. I can't even copy it over to the other hard drive.

whats my options?

I would reboot, and if you can't do that there may be something wrong with your /etc/fstab. (actually i can almost guarantee that there is.) If rebooting doesn't fix it, go into your /etc/fstab and add the line:

/dev/hda1 /tmp ext3 defaults 0 0

ext3 won't necessarily be the one you want there, but its my best guess. If you formatted the 10 GB HD as anything else, put that name in there (reiserfs, ext2, xfs, etc.) Note that you can't use windows filesystems here.

Thank you,

This helped alot. But... lol, i kept being myself and kept playing with things, i had to reload all of linux i got frustrated trying to figure things out, good thing i'm still new at this.

I gave /var 5gb, which doesn't seem like it's gonna be enough over time. but i can move /tmp now to another drive and open the rest of that 10gb up.

Nubmers look so as now...http://img103.imageshack.us/img103/1...apshot1tz8.jpg
