I;m running Kubuntu Hardy 8.40 beta.
I have "/" on a 10 gb partition and "/home" on a separate 10gb partition.
I am suddenly getting messages that there is not enough room in "/tmp"
or that my partition is full.
As I remember, the initial install used something like 6 or 7 gb. I have
not installed many additional packages.
I've looked through the "/tmp" and "/var" directoties but there are only
very small files there. If I were to remove backup logs, old kernels etc
I would gain very little space.
Is it possible that .debs downloaded for updates are being kept instead
of being deleted? Neither Synaptic or Adept appear to have an option
for "keep/delete after installation"
I dont want to have to attempt to enlarge the partition as this will
change its UUID and create even more problems with grub etc then needing
to be altered.
Is there someway to determine if there are any large unneccessary files
held in the "/" partition?
Ideas and suggestions please.
