    Code:
    sudo rpmdb --rebuilddb
    But this result in same
    Code:
    failed to create directory /var/lib/rpmrebuilddb.5623: No space left on device

    I already had that issue with btrfs when opensuse stopped boot, so I had to delete snapshots that brrfs made, and then I configured it to keep only 2 of them... I guess it could be another btrfs trick?

    Well, "rpmdb --rebuilddb" doesn't help with disk full problems...

    Probably.
    How exactly did you configure it to keep only 2 of them?
    Check in YaST->Snapper (or "snapper list") if you really only have 2 snapshots. If there are more, delete some.

    Also try to run:
    Code:
    btrfs fi balance start </mountpoint> -dusage=5
    (see https://www.suse.com/documentation/s...s_volfull.html)
