eeepc 900 linux kde xandros duplicate directory located in / as a regular folder


Greetings,
I have eeepc 900 Xandros linux kde. Partition 1= /
Partition 2 =/ro.

In partition 1 there a folder called ro, when opned it is a directory that is an exact duplicate of partition 2.Partition 1 is crippled and can not load repositories, use the apt-get function etc.

Partition 2/ro has more capabilities and many less problems, except when trying to apt-update I get an error, not enough space on the device,

Is there a way to delete partition 1 (/) and use partition 2 (/ro) as my main directory?

Any help would be greatly appreciated regardless of the outcome. Thank you for reading my post!

Please give the output of following commands
Code:
mount
df -h
cat /etc/fstab
ls /ro
Just guessing here. Partition 2 is mounted on /ro thats why it looks like it. And the message that there is not enough space could be that partition 1 is full.

If you want beside me not knowing if all requirements are met to use the second partition you have to alter your boot loader. But just leave that for later right now.

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.

Nope thats not what I wanted. This looks like the output of apt-get.
When you are on the command line please put in the commands I posted and give us the output.

Coming to the error you have there try
Code:
apt-get -f install
on the command line. Either this fixes things or we need the output of your sources list. Provide output of
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Thank you for your excellent intentions, but please do not expend any more time on the reports. I believe that I may be a tad too much of a newbie and will be posting in LinuxExchange going forward.

With appreciation and respect for your kind efforts,

I remain,

Xfool
