I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my wife's laptop. Originally there was Win 7 on it and I simply wiped out everything and used the whole disk for Ubuntu. I followed the following guide to create partitions: How to use manual partitioning during installation?
After I filled the /home/user/... directory with some personal files I received the warning that /root was running out of space.
I checked the space available on the partitions and /home disappeared while /boot dramatically increased (During the installation, I assigned 500 MB to /boot and 230 GB to /home)
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 1,9G 0 1,9G 0% /dev tmpfs 385M 6,2M 379M 2% /run /dev/sda5 19G 7,6G 11G 43% / tmpfs 1,9G 13M 1,9G 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 5,0M 4,0K 5,0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 1,9G 0 1,9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda8 9,1G 22M 8,6G 1% /tmp /dev/sda7 9,1G 983M 7,7G 12% /var /dev/sda6 230G 250M 218G 1% /boot /dev/sda9 185G 9,9G 166G 6% /opt tmpfs 385M 60K 385M 1% /run/user/1000
What happened here? Or maybe.. what did I do wrong here? Thank you for your time.
