Hello. I’ve tried doing a fresh install of both 13.2 and Leap and after install I have less than 15 GB of remaining space on a 256 GB disk.
I am not setting Home as its own partition and I am using ext4. Currently it shows I have only 13.7 GB of 20 GB of free space.
In gparted and GNOME disk utility it doesn’t show that my partition is this small and I’ve tried other distros and they allow me my full space.
What could be causing this issue and what information would I need to provide for assistance? Space fills up extremely fast in my /tmp folder and the computer quickly becomes unusable and freezes when this happens.
I wanted set up to be similar to the Windows C:\ drive with everything all in the same partition, so I unchecked the option to make Home its own partition.
As for why I used ext4, it’s because I read it was better for SSDs.
If I wanted both the system and Home to be on the same partition did I not do the correct thing? I still don’t understand why I have so little usable space if it’s supposed to be all on the same partition.
And you used LVM. Why? I do not see any reason, so please explain.
My conclusion so far (but I do not have any information about the LVs you created), you created a PV of the rest of the disk (that is witthout EFI partition) and within that PV you created a LV for Swap and a LV of 20 GB which now has the complete system because you did not create a separate /home.
Your argument about doing things like in Windows is of course, …well, I do not know how to say this polite …
Linux is not Windows and Windows is not Linux.
Better re-install and let the installer propose something nice (which will be something like partitions for /boot/efi, swap, / and the rest for /home. Either simply accept that (why not?) or come here for advice. And you can use ext4 when you like that.
