revised No free space in / directory
If the disk is full then you get a disk space error, not a memory error.

Last comment: (Sorry for the semi abuse of comments) What is the precise error. Does it mention inodes?

comment No free space in / directory
0) Reboot. If disk space mysteriously drops and you might have open (and in use) but already deleted files. Not uncommon with logfiles. 1) Reboot and put the output of mount (or /etc/fstab) in your post. 2) Clean /tmp (assuming it is a real filesystem and not a ramdisk).

comment No free space in / directory
clearing the trash, clears out the space from the home folder but doesn't effect the other one. Then it is likely that you do have /home on a different partition rather than as part of /. Which means something else is taking up space on /. The du commands from other will show the still existing largest files, which may help. If those do not then please try the following:

comment Reboot and select proper boot device?
Do you have an active partition? Did you install two OS's. One in EFI mode and one in legacy mode? Did you chage the boot order after installing?

comment How to kill X server using a key combination?
Yup. Considered some other posts as duplicate. If the OP know about the key combo then it would have been one. As it is I added a link to a similar answer in my post. I could understand a VTC dup though.

Or just issue it from an x-term. :)

comment Radeon dual-card multiple-monitors setup
I lack any experience in using corssfire under linux. I just know that the cards are able of being used independantly and that you should be able (hardware wise) to connect several DP ports to each of them. When people try this in windows then enabling crossfire is usually the problem. Both because it means only the outputs on one card are active, and because it halfs (or worse) the amount of useable memory). These basic are independant of the OS. As for the rest: No real linux experience here since FreeBSD 5...

comment Radeon dual-card multiple-monitors setup
VRAM does 'stack up', unless you use SLI or Crossfire. Then each card has its own copy of the same data. So two cards would both contain the same data and even though two identical cards would mean twice the amouth of physical memory, it would not present more usable memory. Without SLI/crossfire you should be able to use all video memory.

comment Win apps on Ubuntu
I am not sure if you can get any 'app' to work via wine. Applications (programs, not changed phone style apps) should mostly work though. But skipping that: what did you try? Which error(s) do you get?

comment What is the proper chmod for a file
htaccess adds a webserver to the mix. (with all its advantages and disadvantages). I see nothing about webservers or PHP in the post and I did not write the answer with that in mind. You might want to edit your original post if this is for a webapplication. Otherwise it seems a solution which is needlessly complex.

comment How to dual boot with two drives
I suspect that the windows boot part if looking for a path on the first drive. With the mSATA drive added that now has become the second drive. Which means that you need to edit the BCDstore

revised How can I change a drive's partition table from MBR to gpt without losing an NTFS partition at the end of the drive?
Interesting that gpart calls it 'msdos', but it really is MBR (which is used by DOS, and by many other operating systems).
