I had recently run a script in our college exam on my computer which was specifically for 32bit(i386) but my ubuntu is amd64 , so the script wouldn't run but then I tried accessing the folders in my home folder which gave me permission denied. So I did a sudo chmod 777 -R /home/username , which gave me permissions to complete the test even though I was put as an exception to take my test without using the script to run successfully. After all this and another two days later I started facing problems of less space on my drive but I probably should have had plenty of space. Then it said that I have 1.4 kb space left on the system. I searched for my problem on the net and somewhere I found an answer on askubuntu which I am not able to find again. It said that, what actually happened is that the home directory should have 644 permission rather than 777 and so the files I deleted had their INODES still present along with the new files I added to the directory and hence there is no space left. I have removed everything from the home directory and when I try to add a file with size less than a kb it still says no space left. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
