I happily (sigh) decided to upgrade my RH. Overall the worst
part (up to now) is that when I installed RH4.0, I followed the
suggestions in the manual and used a "/" partition with ONLY 30M.
To my surprise, during the FTP upgrade I ran out of space in "/".
Looking at the new manual I see that the suggested size increased...
Removing mail files from /var/spool/mail (and some other things), I
managed to get just enough space to finish the upgrade.
Current situation is that a lot of packages didn't install because
space in "/" is not enough. Also, I cannot receive email in the linux
Looking at sizes, I have
Filesystem 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/hda5 31199 31010 0 100% /
9347 /var/lib/rpmQuote:> du -sk /var/lib/rpm
11793 /libQuote:>du -sk /lib
So these are the bad guys. I can see that I can resize "/", but that
means I have to reformat the hard drive (??), which I'd rather avoid.
Does anybody have other suggestions? If I create a link from
/var/lib/rpm to /usr/rpm (lots of space) will it work?
Thanks in advance,
