I have been using Linux since the late 90's, and Ubuntu since warty. I work with Linux machines full time, and use an Ubuntu desktop for much of my programming.

comment Kernel compiling help
I've known (on smaller/slower machines) kernel compilations to run overnight. Stuff in tmp (since it is mounted with tmpfs), will be gone when you next reboot. Now - which of the devices above was the space used on?

comment Kernel compiling help
"disk free". Type it at a console to see your free disk space. Generally "df -h" to get it in "human" form.

Can you post the output of df? Also the relevant bits from your bash history - downloading, extracting, compiling and deleting.

Does this affect the dm login screen as well? We can then start to eliminate it being individual user settings.

comment How can I move a boot partition onto a Flash drive?
True - however, I am relatively sure there are tiny live distro's that fit - I think there are a couple that come in under 64Mb. For example - damnsmalllinux.org.
