MYSQL Crashed - Root partition full - can't find the big files
Some tables in mysql crashed, mythtv wouldn't run, and I noticed that the disk space on / was at 100%. It's a 7.5GB partition, and usually it's only around 40 or 50%. I repaired the database, myth now runs, but I can't find what's taking up all the diskspace.
/var/log/mysql only has 5.3M.
/var/log/mythtv only has 12K
all of /var/log itself has 147M.
apt-get clean all brought it down to 99%.
/tmp had some .ICE-unix and .X11 directories, but those were empty. I deleted them anyway in case there were some hidden files and rebooted. Still at 99%.
This is on an up to date debian lenny, with kernel 126.96.36.199. I just did a dist-upgrade yesterday -- I guess that did something. How can I find out where that extra space is being taken up?
