Disk full


I just installed Suse Linux Enterprise Server and two compilers. The server is still in test but now I get the message the disk is full. Any idea how I can quickly find the cause

df -h gives me 915G (!!) used of 915G

du -sh root gives me 910G

Any idea how to find the files which fills up my system?

Probably the log files?

Kind regards

You should consider a good partition scheme for your server.
Also a server doesn't need X.

Kind regards

I use this to analyse storage usage:
Code:
du -xak /|sort -n|tail -100
