    Klunker; Hey ,

    Looks fine. But, did you use synaptic and completely remove all those old images and header files ?

    look'n better all the time

    I removed everything I thought I could, and ran auto-remove...

    Klunker; Looking good !

    Almost done,

    Let's see what might be left of any kernels:
    Terminal command - once more :
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep linux*
    Now that you have full access to your system, how about using code tags when you post back requested information. Makes things so much easier and understandable.

    the end is in sight
    there is light there at the end of that tunnel

    Hi, Sorry, but It doesn`t seem possible to cut and paste out of the terminal, and I can`t type. So reproducing that output would take me an hour. I hope my photo will suffice. My apologies.

    Re: Lubuntu won`t load, not enough hard drive space

    Klunker; OK !

    From what I can see and understand, looking great.
    Are you now booting to the desktop, /activating a terminal from the desktop you should have copy and paste abilities !/ and all is functional ?
    What now results from terminal commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    If that runs well, what now are the space conditions ?
    Code:
    df -h
    looking for it to be less than 85% used in any/all partition(s).

    Finally, if all is well with a stable system, we will clear out the cache - starting again with a clean slate.

    that I expect
    is all she wrote for this issue

    Hi Bashing OM, Still can`t cut and paste out of the terminal, but otherwise everything seems to have went well. After the update and upgrade, I`m at exactly...85%! So, not optimal, but functional at least! I will get some more music off of it ASAP. Anything else I should do then?

    Copying from and pasting into a terminal is easy, but you have to use the menu of the terminal, as Ctrl-c, Ctrl-x and Ctrl-v don't work in a terminal.
    Not sure whether this is true for all terminals, though. Example of copied from terminal and pasted here:

    I have a small netbook, Acer Aspire One, with a very small SSD, 8 GB, and have to manually remove the unneeded Linux-image files regularly, keeping only the two latest, after a kernel update.
    This I always do in synaptic, first carefully planning what to remove, on paper. Searching for linux-image, and possibly the linux-headers too. The highest numbers are the latest files. And of course I do the sudo apt-get clean routine after every update, to remove the downloaded files, which are not necessary any more.

    Without this I would find the netbook unusable in a not so long time.

    Re: Lubuntu won`t load, not enough hard drive space

    Klunker; Hey,

    We are done when these commands are run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    As Topsiho advises that is all there is to housecleaning !
    Simple
    run the du command to see what the space constraints might be;
    Take a look on occasion at the size of the log files in /var/log/ (and what the logs convey);
    synaptic to remove the old kernels;
    sudo apt-get autoremove;
    sudo apt-get autoclean;
    sudo apt-get clean.

    There is no need of any alternatives ! Unless something gets out-of hand -.

    apt-get clean: command clears out the local repository of retrieved package files. It removes everything but the lock file from /var/cache/apt/archives/ and /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/. When APT is used as a dselect method, clean is run automatically. Those who do not use dselect will likely want to run apt-get clean from time to time to free up disk space.

    apt-get autoremove: used to remove packages that were automatically
    installed to satisfy dependencies for some package and that are no
    more needed. In the newer releases of 'buntu also removes the old kernel modules.

    apt-get autoclean: only removes files that cannot be downloaded anymore (obsolete).

    As you now know, The system must have operating head room, or it can do nothing. At 90% used space one starts clean up, at 95% usage you have a problem to get that operating head room. Best practice is not to let it get to that point.
    ----------

    I expect at this point all is hunky dory and pending the closing remarks I trust this thread can now be closed as solved; 1st post -> thread tools.

    With my regards I say ->
    happy trails to you

    Just want to say thanks again to everyone that contributed to helping me out, especially you Bashing-OM. You`ve taught me some new tricks and given me the confidence to install Lubuntu on my Wife`s old laptop! Again, My sincerest thanks!
    Cheers!

    Klunker; Out standing !

    Helping is what we do so you get the best of and enjoy 'buntu !

    If this matter is concluded, do not forget to mark this thread as solved.

    And hey, I happen to like Lubuntu ( xfce4 even more !) - personal preference -
