I've had SolydX 64-bit installed on a desktop machine (HP dc7900) for quite a while. I've been too busy to do much with it for a while, but saw the update come through a little while ago and installed it, which seemed to go without any problems.
I've now hit a really odd problem. I've got a 500 GB disk in the machine, partitioned as below:
Code: Select all
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 63 1959929 979933+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda2 1959930 976773167 487406619 5 Extended /dev/sda5 1959993 31262489 14651248+ 83 Linux /dev/sda6 31262553 976773167 472755307+ 83 Linux
I've had a look and indeed, there is almost no space left on the / partition, but I can't work out what is using all the space. I've uninstalled older kernels, and cleaned up everything I could, but I've still only got around a GB of free space.
I ran baobab using sudo, and it shows 13 GB used for the root directory of the partition used for /, but there is nothing visible and none of the directory contents seem to add up to such a big figure.
So I'm wondering if something has compromised the system? I've run both rkhunter and tripwire, neither of which report any problems, but I'm having no luck working out what has eaten all my free space.
Any ideas before I low level format the disk and start again? If nothing else, my broadband connection is suffering at the moment, so I'm not keen on downloading the new SolydX iso until that is fixed, and I'd be pushed for time to reinstall and get the apps I need back and working, so I'd love not to have to go the reinstall route.
