I use Karmic on a Compaq CQ40 laptop with an extra GB of RAM (totaling 2GB). Since I'm new I installed a lot of programs hoping to weed out the unwanted later. But now my system shows that '/usr has only 200 MB left' on boot up. My /usr is on a partition of 5.4 GB, and as far as I can see only 4.3 is being used.
My Hard Disk sections are as follows :
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x31a431a3

/dev/sda9 12724 15856 25165791 83 Linux
sda8 being system files, sda9 home, sda5 usr, sda 6 windows.
What should I do :
a. Uninstall all those (lovely) programs?
(I certainly won't, and plan to install more)
b. move a subdirectory of usr like /share which used 2GB! (what's up with that) to a newly created partition?
(I searched the forums and that is really daunting)
c. extend my /usr (magically) (Is it possible?)( I have a live image of Jaunty)
I've attached a screenshot of my usr usage.
This is my first month of Ubuntu, and not only am I a newbie, but also a medical professional, so my computer skills are negligible.
Thanks in advance.
