So, I'm running into a bit of a problem and being a noob at this
isn't really helping.
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad with a 16Gb SSD and a 500Gb HDD.
My idea was initially to install the OS on the SSD and the rest
on the HDD. That way it should boot and run faster (right?).
I installed the /root on the SSD and the /home on the HDD.
So far it's been working great until I recently started getting
notifications saying I'm running out of /root space.
I combed through different forms and such and have ran all the
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
and managed to free up about 1Gb of space. Not really enough
I've ran sudo du -h --max-depth=1 in root and this was the
3.6G ./lib 14M ./etc 12K ./media 13M ./sbin 4.0K ./cdrom 5.7G ./usr du: cannot access ‘./run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied 1.2M ./run 32K ./tmp 653M ./boot 4.0K ./srv 72K ./root 9.8M ./bin 4.0K ./mnt du: cannot access ‘./proc/599/task/599/fd/4’: No such file or directory du: cannot access ‘./proc/599/task/599/fdinfo/4’: No such file or directory du: cannot access ‘./proc/599/fd/3’: No such file or directory du: cannot access ‘./proc/599/fdinfo/3’: No such file or directory 0 ./proc 4.0K ./lib64 5.3G ./home 11M ./kws 4.0K ./dev 960M ./var 16K ./lost+found 954M ./opt 0 ./sys 17G .
Why is there a 5.3Gb /home if I placed my home on the HDD? (probably
a stupid question).
Is there anyway I can reduce the used space in /root?
Is there a way I could have the OS on a different drive than the rest?
