No space left on device


OpenSuse 11.2

Kdevelop is complaining that I have no space left on device.

Code:
linux-uitj:/home/anisha # df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5             20641788  19593140         8 100% /
udev                   1022964       204   1022760   1% /dev
/dev/sda6            153660192  42307864 103546748  30% /home
It is the root partition that has been fully used. It is the cause of the problem ? Home still has some space!

Also man pages are coming up blank !

Yes this is a dumb question, help !

Clean up is urgent! ;-)
Look in /tmp. You could also have some old stuffs in /var (ex old versions of packages)
And for the future, if you can, set an automatic clean up of temporary files at boot.

Thanks to both of you, my work is halted here

I looked up tldp:
http://tldp.org/LDP/LGNET/18/tmp.html

But I don't have : /var/catman ??

I googled up the following thread and will just see what is there:

Deleting large folders and files or unnecessary codes(you seem to be developer) will help you.Wish you had LVM it would have saved you now;if you had extra space or drive!

Code:
du -sm /*|sort -n
Find the hog, check what can be pruned.


Cheers,

Thanks for jumping in,

What I am supposed to delete here ?
Is it safe to rm -rf /tmp ?
Code:

Don't do a rm -fr /tmp !!! Or you will remove the directory itself!
You should rather do rm -fr /tmp/* if YOU ARE SURE that you can remove everything in it.

The best way imho is to have a look in it first:
Quote:
cd /tmp
du -sm . |sort -n
And look for big files or directories that you can safely remove.

I have just deleted an ISO file of LUbuntu and the Trash dir, and man pages have started showing up now !

But Kdevelop is still complaining !

I meant the same but wrote differently

Does this make sense to you ?
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> su
Password:              
linux-uitj:/home/anisha # cd /tmp
linux-uitj:/tmp # du -sm . |sort -n 
10529   .

Problem solved !

I followed this post: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...2/#post3232993

and when I rebooted the system, I saw:
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> df -m
Filesystem           1M-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5                20158      8607     10528  45% /
udev                       999         8       991   1% /dev
/dev/sda6               150059     39556    102881  28% /home

I just gave a quick look but most of them look like temporary files used by some applications: gpg, evince, yast...

You know better than me what's installed on your system and should be able to know what you can delete or not. (If unsure, backups are never a bad idea before a cleanup ;-) )

Thanks for following up, I'll read up on cleanup procedure on Linux.

Unhappy The problem has reoccured

This time it is OpenSuse 11.2 in my home!

I have followed the post no. 12 solution and rebooted the system, this didn't help
I deleted the /tmp:
Code:
linux-dpjj:/tmp # ls
.ICE-unix  .X0-lock  .X11-unix  .xfsm-ICE-PKFOOV
linux-dpjj:/tmp # rm -rf
linux-dpjj:/tmp # ls
.ICE-unix  .X0-lock  .X11-unix  .xfsm-ICE-PKFOOV
These files reappeared even when I deleted them individually, HELP!!
