Thread: Unable to boot because of lack of memory?

    Default Unable to boot because of lack of memory?

    Hi,

    I am not able to start Leap 15.1 and it might be because I ran out of memory.

    I have 16g ram and 1TB sdd. Before I tried to shut it down the last time before I am not able to log back in, I tried the df command the last time I was in the system and it shows that I have I used 40gb out of 41gb, particularly in the /var directory.

    I am still a noob, so would appreciate any guidance on how to recover...

    Thanks for advice.

    Sorry, I probably am not clear in my question. Maybe the below might be clearer?

    I am not able to start Leap 15.1 and it might be because I ran out of memory.

    My setup is that there is 16g ram and 1TB sdd. The last time I was in, I tried the df command. It shows that I have I used 40gb out of 41gb, particularly in the /var directory.

    I guess I would need to get a new hard disk but wondering if anyone can shed some light or share some other opinions on how best to recover?

    Thank you in advance.

    Getting a picture or error text that appears during boot would help to deduce what the issue really is.

    Could you snap one using a cellphone and put it up somewhere?

    Here you go....

    A couple of times, there might be a mouse pointer on a black screen. Other times, instead of a mouse pointer, I will have a pointer in the shape of a "X" rather than a mouse pointer...


    Thanks again.

    Probably snapper using up space on the root partition. Run snapper cleanup

    If you used BTRFS file system then snapper is there if you use someother file system then snapper is not there.

    Can yo boot to a terminal? maybe in rescue mode in options for the boot selection???

    Hm, somewhere you could have set that to "never expire". Let us hope the solution for you problem will arrive within 24 hours
