Here is my story. I chose to install Ubuntu through Windows, then every time I choose Ubuntu at the boot up screen. Now I want to update to 8.10, then there is message saying I don't have enough space in Ubuntu to update. How can I assign more space to Ubuntu? I have a lot of space in my hard disk.

Thanks!:KS

Paste this in the terminal:

sudo fdisk -l
Post the results here back at the forums and I or someone else can help you.

(1) when asked to post the output of a command enclose it in
brackets. It makes it a lot simpler to read

(2) post the output of


df -l

Suggest installing as dual boot ("the right way!") instead of Wubi. Read some of the partitioning and installation how-to's a nd FAQs here. It's worth doing right.

Please don't be off-topic! You didn't answer the question at all!

Oh, sorry. I thought you asked


How can I assign more space to Ubuntu? I have a lot of space in my hard disk.

So I answered :

I guess I don't understand the question. I'm kinda stupid that way.

Hyuk!

As much as you may hate it, this is probably the most sensible option. Don't be scared of dual-booting as it is a very common setup. There are many easy guides to dual booting, and it is really what you want.

You can accomplish this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#How%20do%20I%20resize%20the%20virtual%20 disks?

But it looks complicated. I'd second the dualboot option - if you're already comfortable with Ubuntu, this would be the sensible way to go. Ubuntu sets up dualboot for you automatically during the installation.
