Hi friends,
i'm quite new to linux environment.This is the problem i have as soon as i
installed Ubuntu 9.04 64bit on a Seagate-SATA-500gb brand new HDD..
I happen install Ubunto studio 9.04 64bit first ,since it hangs the system and does some crazy things ,i installed Ubuntu 9.04 64bit saying boot side by side.
Happy and everything got installed .when i boot and try to update it says this..

" Not enough free disk space

The upgrade needs a total of 73.0M free space on disk '/'. Please free at least an additional 5136k of disk space on '/'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'. "

I tried the command "sudo apt-get autoclean" didn't work.
please help me to handle this... and to install nvidia drivers .coz this is new HDD and has no previous drivers installed in it.... i downloaded the driver from nvidia website which is Nvidia-linux-x86_64-180.51-pkg2.run ... help me to install this package..
