hi all,i have upgraded to wheezy.Its looking awesome and nice gdm.Actually
i have alloted 10GB of disk space to debian,when i do upgrade it's showing
only 644MB free space.How much disk space wheezy takes?
Depends a lot on the package selection, of which you only mentioned gdm.
I have a Debian graphical installations in less than 2 GB.
Try this (as root):
du / -h --max-depth=1
If /usr is big you need to uninstall packages. If /var is big apt-get
autoclean/clean may help. If /home is big that that's your files ;)
or do i have any
backup files on my file system to be removed after upgrade?
Following commands may free up some space for you, but do read
'man apt-get' for details:
apt-get autoclean # not needed if you run the next one
