Ubuntu just printed the message "Partition "/" almost full. 600MB remaining"
I am running Ubuntu 15.04
I have checked the root partition a few times since that occurred and it was filling up more and more... right now I have 0 bytes free space on it...
My root partition is 15GB in size, and before I created it I googled what a good size was (I'm new to linux) and I read 15GB was more than enough.
apt-get clean got me some free disk space, but that immediately piled up again :/
I read on another question that there was a bug with apt and that the solution was to manually update it, problem is I cannot download that updated version because /tmp is full...
I checked the disk with Baobab, and identified these as the biggest folders:
- usr 8.1GB
- lib 5GB
- share 2.2GB
- var 3GB
- log 1.7GB (syslog file is 1.7GB, all other are a few kb)
I am pretty sure there is something wrong here (especially with that log folder), what can I do about it?
Or should I just enlargen my root partition? and if yes, how do I do that?
