Initially I had installed Ubuntu 11.10 on VirtualBox running on Mac OS, with hard-disk storage of 8GB. As I was left with only 50MB space, I increased the diskspace on the VirtualBox by another 8 GB (Total 16GB) using Mac terminal.
When I logged into Ubuntu I was seeing 2 volumes 8GB (Original) and 8GN (Newly created). I mounted the new volume and the total diskspace now is shown as 16GB.
The issue is that when downloading any software it gives me an error saying diskspace is low as its trying to install on Origianl volume which has 50MB space. How do i make new software to install on new volume by default.
