    Default Opensuse 11.2RC1 - out of space with ext4

    There was a strange issue after using OpenSuse 11.2RC1 for few days, suddenly system refuses to start stating lack of space on disk. After deleting /tmp and setting /tmp deletion on boot, nothing changes. I had to boot to OpenSuse 11.1 on another partition on the same disk. Unfortunately, 11.1 is not able to open ext4 filesystem. Maybe I boot with a live CD like SystemRescue, but I'm curious about this issue.

    You only can know what is going on by issuing "df -H" with the device
    mounted.

    I also think that any Live CD -with ext4 built-in support- may help you to
    dig a bit more on this :-?

    If the system does not start, how did you delete /tmp etc? Or, is the desktop not starting? Please be more clear about what happens/what you have done.

    @Knurpht
    I used the CLI because the desktop was not starting. This morning I gave a try to SystemRescue and used "du -h" on the mounted partition, bu I was unable to find a clue.
    Strangeness is because on the same disk there are two root partitions and a home partition. The OpenSuse 11.2RC1 partition is 15Gb while the OpenSuse 11.1 is 17Gb with about 50% free space.
    I managed to have the same programs installed and do the same activities.
    OpenSuse 11.1 works perfectly while OpenSuse 11.2RC1 filled the disk space.

    Finally using "du" "cut" and "grep" I managed to find what was filling the partition: there were two files in /var/log of 5Gb each
    one was called "warn", the other I'm not sure, maybe "mail".
    Now my question is: why in 11.2RC1 happened this while not in 11.1?
    Is this a bug?

    Hi
    Did you look at the logs to see what the warnings were? I would also
    assume root was being mailed about the error.

    I'd say yes.

    Any application logging that amount of data indicates that something is
    wrong. 5 GiB is by far so much for any log file :-/

    I would open a bug report for this.
