    Default System freezes

    My system , Leap 15.0 started to freeze. I first noticed it when watching a video on youtube. ... Got suspicioues and wanted to get install the latest patches via Yast.

    System stopped after a few downloads, Error msg

    Can't find a writable directory to create an attach point !!!!!

    In Event notification the "KDE free space notifier deamon :

    Running low on disk space !!!!!!!

    Checked the disk space:

    /home 158 GiB free of 168 GiB

    /root 24 GiB free of 10 GiB

    .... to me it looks like a hardware issue. I have a SSD from Kensington.

    Thanks for your help

    Valid comment .... but I can’t do your suggested check ... since I can’t fire up my system any longer. So I guess I have to try to use the rescue boot option and try the command you suggested.

    It is bizarre .

    If you have any other ideas please let me know.

    thanks

    Exactly what rescue system did you try? I just booted the 15.0 DVD Rescue System in BIOS mode, and the btrfs command is found.

    There is an unanswered thread from 22.01.19 “no space left on disk” where the moderator suggests that btrfs is eating away disk space.

    df -k shows no space left in dev/loop0 to 4

    I am not familiar with the btrfs command and don’t know how to get the desired results

    In any case that is bizzar.

    for any help I would be greatfull.

    regards

    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:BTRFS ought to be enough to get through this. If not, someone else will have to chime in here.

    Hi, thanks for the link.
    Unfortunately I can not work one my (faulty)system. After a few (3-4) commands the system freezes and I have to reboot.
    when booting with the rescue system, and enter
    $btrfs filesystem show /
    $Error: not a valid btrfs file system
    comes up
    I have the suspicion that there is not a snapper overflow.... but don’t know since the command “snapper” is not known.
    if it is a hardware fault, how can I interrogated the ssd ?
    From an installation point of view the system has no special add ons for file system or other things.
    I can’t provide screenshots due to the almost immediate freeze and I access the forum via an iPad.

    I wonder how I reasonably progress since I am not familiar with filesystem maintenance.

    anyway, if you have an idea please let me know.

    Thanks and and best regards

    What do you mean saying?
    the rescue system
    When I boot "Rescue System" from 15.0 installation media, after keying Ctrl-Alt-F3 I see:
    Code:
    openSUSE Leap 15.0 Rescue System
    
    rescue login: root
    Have a lot of fun...
    tty3:rescue:~ # btrfs --help
    usage: btrfs filesystem [<group>] <command> [<args>]
    
    	btrfs filesystem df [options] <path>...
    I don't think "(recovery mode)" in your Grub menu is intended for solving a freespace shortage. The "$" prompt is a signal you're not where you need to be, but maybe you can use:
    Code:
    $ btrfs filesystem show /
    From $ prompt, please show complete output from
    Code:
    $ df; $ cat /etc/fstab; lsblk
    These commands' output each can be redirected to file by appending > someeasytorememberfilename to make copy and paste the output here easier.

    Thanks for your reply. I guess I have not properly explained the situation I am faceing. My system freezes ,after boot and a few commands within 5 minutes. I basically have no chance to capture the command results and therefore post them on the forum.
    I noted the problem when the system froze during a YouTube video (did a reboot) . By coincidence I Decided to install updates via yast. There the download stoped half way through and a msg came , something like can’t establish link to create file pointing to the assumption the disk is full which was also indicated b
    y the idea freespace daemon.

    I try to execute the commands you suggested.

    thanks
