The Space Monger

Posted in Linux/Zaurus Tips and Tricks at 7:12 am by sdjf

Found it! I hadn’t looked at /etc/ppp/connect-errors in a very long time and it had grown to ~780k! No wonder my space was so extremely low….trimmed it down to under 3k. No wonder I was getting “No space left on device” so often.

hehehehe. At last! Still low, less than a meg free, but 850k free is a WHOLE lot better than 100-200k. 🙂 Progress!

There are a lot of other system files that grow and can take up space, and I’ve started working on a post about locating them, but wanted to share today’s find.

Other good places to clean out files generally are in /tmp/ and in /var/log
