Where is my space?

Postby TommyDK on Sun Oct 24, 2010 12:48 pm

Hi all

I am running a Linux mint 9 on my 8 GB USB drive (Live installation). I am very happy with that, but one problem cause a problem: the installation eat my space, and I don't know where it is!? First, after a clean installation there was at least 4 GB space free, but know there is only about 200 MB. I have not installing very much, I have clean the cache (in browser), all folders is empty, I have use fslint and so on, where is my space?

Regards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Updates are still into cache. You can clean the cache via terminal.

df -h

sudo apt-get clean

df -h

Now I have 780MB free (better than 200MB). But I think there must be much more space?

8 gb? It is very fair for a modern Linux system, will soon have stability problems.
why moving to a lighter distro?.

It's works fantastic - and I need all the stuff (when I am out)! But I think of installing Mint on my Mac (if is possible).
