The hard disk space is full


Hi All,

The hard disk space is showing as 100% usage whereas I have only 5GB of data available on the disk.
The output of the df command is below

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 3099260 3057612 0 100% /
tmpfs 2017976 8 2017968 1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda2 101105 11657 84227 13% /boot

Could anyone let me know how to resolve this.

Thanks to all in advance.

Your root partition is full so you need to find out where the space is being used:

# du -sh /*

You have only a 3 gig root partition. Do you have other partitions mounted (apart from the one on /boot which is mentioned in the original post)? If not, then I think you probably haven't allocated enough space for a SuSE installation.

Well the partitions were proper when I created it. After running fsck it showed as 53% of disk space is free but when I rebooted it after fsck it crashed and gave a message of Kernel panic.

Can anyone explain this?

you can use the find command to find files or specific sizes and more
Code:
# find  / -type f -name "core" 
# find / -type f -size +20M
