Where is my space?

Postby TommyDK » 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

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?.
Linux Mint #1 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).
