Angry Ubuntu 7.10.....Not enouph Disk space...I have a 60 gig drive??


Good afternoon all...I have a Hp Business Style Notebook compaq nx7400 running Ubuntu 7.10. Over all everything worked out of the box...

I have a 60 gig harddrive, thinking that i have enough space to put all my music on the drive I'd used the ogg multimedia format.... So far I have 895 songs totaling 3.2MB. Using disk usage analyzer it shows that.:

Total filesystem capacity 52.7gb (8.0GB used 47.7GB Available)
/gordon 100% usage 4.3gig size 60 items,
/music 73.4 usage 3.2gig size 5 Items,

I have an external harddrive that I'd tryed coping approx 900 more songs to the 60gig internal drive and the error message came up as not enouph disk space.....I read that i should not leave my system in singal user mode.

/dev/sda1 ext3 /

/dev/sda2 extended.

Can some one please point me to a the howto files / man files or the webpages that I need to read and what I may be so blindly missing....

I really do not what I need to look at....

Perhaps "df -hT"; might save further questions.

Might be a long shot but perhaps you have quota's turned on, not sure about how to manage that stuff tho, if you did I think you can find evidence of it within /etc/fstab if / has the usrquota and/or the grpquota options...

How do you mount (and use) /gordon and /music ?.
Let's see the output from "sudo fdisk -l".

is /gordon and /music
mounted on / if so this is always a BAD idea
just a guess but "gordon" should be
/home/gordon
and "music" should be
/home/gordon/music

or if those 2 folders ARE in / , are they mounted using fstab ?
