I am new to the linux scene. I converted from my microsoft ways about two weeks ago and have been REALLY happy with the way that my Ubuntu distribution is working (even though I underestimated how much space I needed to partition.)
So, here's my problem(s). I partitioned only 2.3 Gigs for the linux side of things (I wanted to be conservative and not mess with Windows functionality.) I can't download anything to my computer! The memory says it's full. See below,
fernando@fernando-laptop:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 2.3G 2.2G 0 100% /
tmpfs 1003M 0 1003M 0% /lib/init/rw
varrun 1003M 92K 1003M 1% /var/run
varlock 1003M 0 1003M 0% /var/lock
udev 1003M 156K 1003M 1% /dev
tmpfs 1003M 512K 1002M 1% /dev/shm
lrm 1003M 2.4M 1000M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-!generic/volatile
overflow 1.0M 16K 1008K 2% /tmp
When I try to clean it out with the "sudo apt-get autoclean" command in the terminal, it doesn't clean any space.
This creates two problems:
1) When I try logging into the Windows Vista partition, I'm sent to a screen that prompts me to: (a) clean the disk drive of recent additions, (b) return the CPU to its manufactures condition, or (c) different variations of a and b.
Should I worry about this? I can't download the software to run the dual-environments without more space.
2) I can't download the files necessary to upgrade to 9.10 (and consequentely partition 8 Gs).
I want to thank you in advance for you time!
