I'm running easypeasy updated fully on a asus eee pc 901 intel w/ intel atom processor. just upped the ram from 1 gig to 2 gigs but everything drags somewhat most of the time while the system monitor says both cores (if it even has two) are at or near 100%. thats not a huge issue as this is a netbook and i'm not expecting a mini deep blue here. but the main reason i'm posting is because i believe i messed up my partition. I keep getting this error message when running computer janitor.
Failed to run computer-janitor-gtk as user root.
Unable to copy the user's Xauthorization file.
I read up that this could be because of an error i made while partioning my drive. I left 4 gigs for the root directory, 12 for my home folder, and 4 for my swap thinking it would be enough but it filled up quickly with updates and a few programs. when I downloaded my last program (amarok) i had multiple warnings for low disk space, but it never completely filled up. i was trying to delete files but i didn't know which were system critical and I didn't want to break my ubuntu even more. anyways when I tried to run Gparted I got the same message about the xauthorization file again. I really don't want to re install and reformat again as this will be my third time... so any advice you unix wizards can bestow on a noob?
thanks in advance.
