I have never had a space issue since installing this PC with LVM drives. However I ran out of / space today! My / was 221MB and no way to increase space as i created root on /dev/hda1
I noted /lib was the largest at 133 and that modules was almsot all of that . I deleted soem unused kernels modules and space reclaimed - now I am wondering if /libs can be on a differnt location with a link to /lib.. It seems that an LVM may need to be mounted via a kernel module or user space prog before the files are accessible so it woudl be trying to use libs to mount /libs!? Am I assuming correct?
What are some options now - I ahve plenty of unpartitioned space on /dev/hdb and I reckon I could move lib to a non LVM managed volume... or how about move all of ROOT to an LVM volume - guessing LVM has to be in initram
Oh sheesh. I hate to admit it but I've been fighting simpe package script problems for an hour and now I hate Debian testing :-( The broken package -- wait for it --- reportbug!
I foudn the bug on this but it was supposedly closed since a newer version fixes it! So now i cant upgrade reportbug - cant remove it since it's broken and everything else is waiting for me to resolve this before taking any action!
I hate to say it but Debian is starting to wear me down. Sometimes I want new softwre or versions without having to put up with Broken as well. Maybe a move to Ubuntu, Mepis or the like is in my near future...I can't even believe myself! Maybe after a few hours sleep this will all seem much better...
