size gets bigger and bigger

Hi i have noticed that the hard disk left space is getting smaller and smaller... I am trying to find out why.... I want to search using a command to find out the largest files in my system... No XServer is installed in my system....

I think that the problem derives from the log files... because i have a kernel with debug messages on...

Any good suggestion?

Check in /var/log dir for the largest files. I would turn off debug unless you are still investigating a custom kernel build.
