I am a new Ubuntu user, some past experience of Debian, but nothing to write home about.

I am a perl enthusiast on StackOverflow.com, and I am loving the Ubuntu experience. Right now, I barely see any reason to stick with Windows.

comment How to handle out of space errors
Isn't it possible to split up /usr on different partitions? I'm not sure how one would go about adding new partitions, but theoretically it should be possible to for example mount /usr/share/doc on a new partition, right?

comment How to handle out of space errors
I am running a Wubi install, and chose the max size I could for the Ubuntu install, which was not a lot. It created partitions for me, as I recall, though at the moment I cannot check what they were. /usr was created with something like 3,9Gb, according to output from df. Then there was perhaps 4-6 other partitions of varying sizes. I've no idea if the external HDD uses FAT32, but I am running WinXP.

The space you refer to all sit on other partitions, though. Cache, documents, pictures and even /boot, I think. I went with the standard options when installing, which seems silly now, because most of them are near empty, while /usr is full.
