Full Disk Warning

Post by YoMan »

I recently installed Mint Cinnamon on my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 and all was working well. It has a 500gb ssd. It is set up as a dual boot with Windows. Windows has about 75gb (used infrequently), Mint / has about 75gb and home has the rest. I have only installed Keepassxc, have done some configuration (wallpaper, etc), and have posted some apps from the menu to the panel. I was working in LibreOffice today when I got a message that root was full. I could not save the document I was working on and the system was reluctant to reboot. Once it did, I booted it in recovery mode and looked at the system summary:

Filesystem__________Size_____Used___Avail____Use%_____Mounted on
udev________________3.8G____0_______3.8G____0__________dev
tmpfs_______________770M___1.1M____769M___1__________ /run

7384 7691 77 7393 1 220

Swap: 2047 0 2047

System database (apt)
Database is consistent: unknown: (read-only filesystem)

I left out network info

After that, it did boot with a message that said that it is running without video hardware acceleration (probably to save space). I have done nothing more and am writing this on my old laptop.

I don't like the looks of the "bad physical volumes" statement. The Recovery Menu has fsck. Should I run it before doing anything else?

Any advice is welcome.

You can start to find out where the space is being used with this nicely formatted command I found on the internet tubes: sudo du -h / | grep -P '^[0-9\.]+G'

Very unlikely to help, but can't hurt so go ahead. Then you can stop wondering about it.

Then run zcot's command, so we can see what's hogging the space.

That is good enough to stick in a desktop launcher so I don't forget it. So much better than 'disk usage analyser'.

Reason: Swapped the [c] tags out for [code] tags; the code tags retain some formatting that makes your output easier to read.

Bill, please edit the post to replace [c] with [code] and [/c] with [/code]. Thanks.

Anyhoo, nothing jumps out at me. Let's check the trash bin:

Code: Select all

ls -lash /root/.local/share/Trash

Regarding changing "code", what I did was the result of clicking the "c" icon at the top of the comment box. Does it need to be manually changed?

The results of the command line for finding "trash" is:

Code: Select all

 '/root/.local/share/Trash': No such file or directory
Using Nautilus, I checked that folder and did not see "Trash"

The "c" button is intended for short bits of text, a few words. For long blocks, you should use the </> button.
Personally, I find it easier to type the code tags (type, Ctrl-V, type) but either way works.
Does it need to be manually changed?
Yes, please.

Cross that suspect off the list!

It still doesn't show the offending file(s); try

Code: Select all

sudo du -a /var/log | sort -n
I run this log-cleaning script every once in a while, but you should probably find out why the files are so big - you probably have a repeating error that's "spamming" one of the files; the du -a command above will show it/them

Code: Select all

find /var/log -type f -name "*.old" -delete
find /var/log -type f -name "*.gz" -delete
find /var/log -type f -name "*.1" -delete
find /var/log -type f -name "*.2" -delete
find /var/log -type f -name "*.3" -delete
find /var/log -type f -name "*.4" -delete
rm /var/log/journal/*/*
rm /var/backups/*.gz
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!

Do I understand correctly that the second group of commands go into an executable file? Please bear with me. It's been a long time. Can you talk me through that process? I think I just copy/paste the text lines into the editor, save as a file, and then, somehow, make it executable. Thanks

I'm not sure how my last question in my last comment above was entered as part of "code" (or, it appears to be). It is outside of the "code" brackets?

You need to write the first bracket in order to close codes..

First, you can just do

Code: Select all

sudo rm /var/log/kern.log.1
sudo rm /var/log/kern.log
sudo rm /var/log/syslog.1
and get most of your space back. (the *.1 files are saved versions of previous files)

Otherwise and additionally, copy all that text, paste it in a file (call it "clean-logs.sh"), save the file and then do

Code: Select all

sudo sh clean-logs.sh
It doesn't need to be executable.

Then I'd suggest rebooting and keeping an eye on /var/log/syslog and /var/log/kern.log, to see which error(s) are causing them to fill up.

Code: Select all

dmesg
might help, or

Code: Select all

more /var/log/syslog
(same for kern.log) "more" uses space and CR to control the output.

Code: Select all

tail filename
shows the last entries

Ah, I didn't notice the missing bracket. Thanks

You need new specs.
Alas, actually true. Also, I have a heck of a time reading text in [c] tags, which is one reason I don't use them.
