After a Backup restore, we accidentally filled up the root folder "/" HDD and had no disk space left. I started Ubuntu from a USB, mounted the HDD and found out that the Backup was made in /home on that HDD. However, we have a separate HDD for /home. So I just deleted everything under /home on that HDD, restarted Ubuntu and everything was fixed disk space wise.
I then ran a script that uses R (Rscript) and noticed that I now get this error:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
When I start R with
sudo it starts without a problem. (
So I thought this is easily fixed with
chown, but it is not. I tried:
sudo chown Myname /home/Myname/ -R
But that didn't fix it. Pretty clueless now. Anyone had a similar issue? I have also uninstalled and reinstalled R.
R gives has a function to get some System and User info. this is what I get when starting R using
Sys.info() sysname "Linux" release "3.16.0-62-generic" version "#83~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 26 22:52:39 UTC 2016" nodename "PC3272796" machine "x86_64" login "imm_admin" user "root" effective_user "root"
I also checked where R is installed with:
> R.home()  "/usr/lib/R"
From previous tries, I have already changed the permission for the contents of the folder from root to imm_admin which is the current user.
