    Default Disk space Stolen : But How??


    I'm not sure where to post this problem. But this is givng me lot
    trouble, even i can't open files from internet.
    My OpenSuse is installed in sda3. df -h is giving ouput >
    > Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    > /dev/sda3 20G 19G 22M 100% /
    > udev 220M 132K 220M 1% /dev
    >

    But I don't understand how 19G is used!! If I right click on filesystem
    and click properties it shows Total Content Size 12.5 GB (Which is
    proper) but gives 21.6 MB (equal to o/p of df) as free space. But sda3
    is >
    > Disk /dev/sda3: 21.4 GB, 21476206080 bytes
    > 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2611 cylinders
    > Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    > Disk identifier: 0xc8e78132
    > (obtained with fdisk /dev/sda3). I'm now just continuing my work

    clearing the /tmp folder. But ... Got real Chaap.

    (this does not help in solving your problem, but just to make your posts
    more readable: use CODE wrappers instead of QUOTE wrappers around
    computer text, it is the # sign in the toolbar).

    I tried to read the columns.
    fdisk says the partition is 21 G.
    df says it is mounted on / and 20G (correct) and 19G is used.

    Now I do not know what is all included in this fs (is there a separate
    /home, are there other separate fs's). But you could try to find where
    most of the 19 G goes by using du -sk on e.g. /tmp, /var and others.

    Code:
    --------------------
    du -sk /tmp /var
    --------------------

    When you find one abnormal big cd into it and do more

    Code:
    --------------------
    du -sk *
    --------------------

    It might take some time.

    Thank you hcw. 1st I used du -skh * which showed me my home directory is
    eating 6G space, but then was unable to find how? Then I used du -akh
    /home/user/.* | grep G Which showed me beagle log is eating up 5.8G!!
    Now I've uninstalled beagle. Thank you again.

    You are welcome. I like it when people, with just a little help, develop
    their own error seeking skills.

    And yes, removing Beagle frees al sorts of resources.

    Haven't removed beagle yet. Just deleted the log files. Planning to
    write a script for beagle log file clearance periodically.

    I usually remove everything beagle related as soon as I can, having
    never found any use for that program. What do people use beagle for?
    The only thing I've noticed with beagle is that lowend systems are
    rendered unusable with beagle running.

    I uncheck it for installation at the install process. But when you have
    need for it, sahaittanmoys' solution to cater for the log files with a
    nice cleanup script running from cron is a good idea.
