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.

@bcbc This is an answer, not a comment. I'd be curious to see any tips for clearing disk space too. I read in another answer that you could use apt-get clear, but I am not sure that would affect the /usr partition.

comment Pulseaudio/flash overloading CPU
@jrg Gee, thanks. Its also not with non-Ubuntu, or non-computers. The first problem was about Firefox crashing, this one about Pulseaudio overloading the CPU. What would you have suggested I do? Re-open my question, take away the answer I awarded and hope someone might be reading the "Active" questions? That'd be nice: "So hey, listen RobinJ, I know you were the only one who helped me out, but I need a different answer this time, so I'm going to take back this answer." Are you guys for real?

@nitstorm Did you even read the questions? They're related, but not "the same". My questions have 890, 891 and 624 views, so apparently they are of interest to someone. Frankly, I think you guys should spend more time answering questions, and less time scouring month old questions looking for things to clean up. Coming from StackOverflow, I'm surprised at how little useful feedback I've gotten here.

@nitstorm It no longer loads the CPU while paused, but does when flash video is in full screen mode. And it seems to vary from site to site, and with video quality.

@nitstorm The problems remain, but have changed. I'd like to keep this as a reference to older problems I've had.

@Mark Nope, earned myself a Tumbleweed badge. I am back in Windows XP now. Flash isn't working terribly well here either. My thinking is its time to replace Adobe products, until they make them work.
