I'm logged into uBuntu 14.04 LTS at the University. After several hours of working in nvcc (cpp compiler for nVidia CUDA C), editing .cu (CUDA cpp) and make files in gedit I suddenly get a "Disk quota exceeded" error.
I searched online and found that commands "df -h" and "du -sh" should show me my disk quota. But when I run either of these in Terminal, Terminal hangs and I have to kill it. I'm assuming this is because I don't have rights to run these commands. There is no error message, just a hang. Normal Terminal commands like "ls" and "mkdir" work fine.
The IT department have gone home for the evening...how do I correct this problem and/or see what my quota is?
I had been searching for programming answers in Google Chrome...and had a few crashes of Chrome just prior to this happening. I suspected temporary internet files were part of the problem. So I removed a few local files, reloaded Chrome, cleared all history ("From the beginning of time"), closed Chrome. Then tried the "quota" command suggested in the comments by @mark kirby (which failed due to not being installed)...then I tried "df -h" again and it worked! Don't think it was trying "quota" that did it. Perhaps I was so close to my limit that tmp files required for "df" could not be created.
