My Mythbuntu box was recently misbehaving, and I figured out that this was because my system partition was full.

After a bit of digging around, I discovered that this was because my mythfrontend log file had grown to several GB in size.

I deleted it, rebooted, and all was well again.

However, I'm a bit concerned about why it might have got that big. I think it was left with the TV on (someone just switched off the TV, leaving Mythbuntu in TV playing mode) for a considerable length of time (probably a couple of days). Could that have been the cause?

If not, what else might be wrong?

Mythbuntu 8.10.

Thanks
