I have filled up the / partition. a copy of fstab is below:
$/ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 250M 249M 0 100% /
tmpfs 249M 0 249M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda9 66G 5.2G 58G 9% /home
/dev/hda8 361M 8.1M 334M 3% /tmp
/dev/hda5 4.6G 2.2G 2.3G 50% /usr
/dev/hda6 2.8G 377M 2.3G 15% /var
tmpfs 249M 112K 249M 1% /dev

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/digipad vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
Is it possible to symlink /bin, /etc/, + others into the /home
partition? or just use a partitioner to resize the /home? Which has the
least impact on the filesystem?
thanks in advance
This little gem might help you diagnose your space issues from the command
line, as it's saved me many times:
# du -m -x --max-depth=1 / | sort -n
You'll get a listing of top level directories disk usage (in MB) for the /
filesystem only, sorted by size in ascending order. You can then drill
down into other directories to see what's hogging your disk space.
You're better off IMHO being efficient with your / filesystem rather than
trying to symlink a directories this way and that. You should be able to
get your / filesystem to under 200MB unless you're storing something in
there on purpose, or at least move the offending files somewhere else.
