    yet another not enough disk space 9.04 question..

    sorry to rehash all this yet again, but I've not found a fix for me yet..
    I have an aspire one d250 dual booting win7 and 9.04UNR. I love it so far!! The problem, as i'm sure you could gather, is that I'm unable to upgrade. I've uninstalled/reinstalled 9.04, allocating 25gb for the UNR install, ran sudo apt-get clean/autoremove, and still my disk usage analyzer shows im using %100 of 17.3mb... any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Can you post the output of <df -h> without brackets to verify the situation.

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 2.3G 2.0G 190M 92% /
    tmpfs 1003M 0 1003M 0% /lib/init/rw
    varrun 1003M 92K 1002M 1% /var/run
    varlock 1003M 0 1003M 0% /var/lock
    udev 1003M 152K 1002M 1% /dev
    tmpfs 1003M 88K 1002M 1% /dev/shm
    lrm 1003M 2.4M 1000M 1% /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/volatile



    so my question then is if i've allocated 25gb for UNR, why does it only see 2.3gb? Did the installer partition this space out of the 25 and did i miss the option to set this space allocation during install?

    Apparently, something went wrong there. How exactly are you allocating the space?

    during install from USB, i used the slider on the partition page to allocate the 25gb. if it makes a difference, i selected "install side by side" as I'm dual bootin with win7

    Hi

    It's best to use the partitioning tools within Win to 'shrink' their areas - leave it as unused space. Then ensure your Win re-boots, frequently - Win wants to run a few disk checks.

    Once Win is happy, use gParted to 'grow' your Ubuntu area from the 'free area'.
    So, if you have already got a section of free space, use gParted to allocate it to your Ubuntu area.
    Regards,

    Phill.

    Can you also post the output of <sudo fdisk -l> to verify there aren't multiple Linux partitions. If that's the case, we'll need to get rid of the redundant ones, but regardless of what went wrong, I think Phillw above is right, you don't need to reinstall. Just resize the already existing partition.

    here's hoping this will format in some readable way once i post it..

    Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x9a92f804

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 1307 10489856 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda2 * 1307 19132 143180632 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda3 19133 19457 2610562+ 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 19133 19435 2433816 83 Linux
    /dev/sda6 19436 19457 176683+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris


    this is the part where i get in way over my head. But I want to say thank you to you guys, this kind of support alone is worth the jump from the Redmond plank!
