I found the caches and i lowered them to 1 MB. Thank you!

I am still on the hunt for the beagle though. Its now where to be found on this computer. For now he is disabled but as i do work on the computer he is enabled again.

Perhaps you can take a look in the BIOS, to see if the HD's are detected, and activated

Partition table entries are not in disk order
Bad news: your hard disk is very small. It has only 4 GB of size. I have two suggestions for you:

1. Either go to ``Linux -- General'' forum and ask what tiny Linux you could install on that machine with such disk space.

2. Or go to ``Linux -- Hardware'' forum and ask if it's possible to change hard disk in that machine.

if you use suse
open yast and remove

Quote:
beagle, beagle-evolution, beagle-firefox.
After you removed it, look if the
.beagle
directory still exist in your home directory, if yes remove it as you did before.

If you boot the computer, you can press f12 or f2 or another key, depending on the computer to enter the BIOS.
There you can see the settings and hardware from the computer.
However, if you don't know what you are doing, I would suggest to ask someone with some knowledge of computers to do it for you.

I opened up YaST. There isnt a beagle in site. but i did see something interesting. System Restoration. Is there a possible way to restoring the computer back to the very beginning when it was young innocent and useful? maybe it would find the missing 117GB of hard drive space? it doesnt make sence that a laptop would be built for with 3gb of hard drive space.

Nah, I am looking around, her BIOS is right (and anyway, linux doesn't really care about BIOS limitations when it comes to hard drives).

It's what I suspected in first place, her laptop hasn't a proper hard drive, but an SSD based storage device, which has only 4 GBs, so everything is "fine", in the sense that the OS is seeing all the hard disk. The only problem is that the "hard disk" is so small for SuSE (bravo, HP).

There is a model of this mini note book which has that configuration, you can see it here:

So, the only solutions would be to install anything smaller, or to get a bigger hard disk (if that's even possible, we would need to check the manuals or see the physical unit to be able to tell).

PS.: or to use an external device as a support, like a pendrive or a portable hard drive.

I have no experience with suse, so don't know.
Perhaps someone else can answer this one.

Did you used the search function in yast? (if available :-))

when you say install something smaller, are you talking about a different linux application? like utubau? ( i know i didnt spell that correct ) I dont understand why HP would put something that takes up THAT much disk space and leave you with only 3g of space to work with..
