    [SOLVED] Not enough space

    Its so weird, I think i did a mistake while partitioning .. or some place else, everything is ok except I get that I don't gave enough space while doing certain things like

    There is not enough room on the disk to save /tmp/zF3fSopj.part.

    Remove unnecessary files from the disk and try again, or try saving in a different location.

    I have lots of space in my home directory. what is with /tmp/ directory ??
    How can I increase the space there?

    Please enter the following into the terminal and paste the result here:

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    The /tmp/ you are referring to might be on the root partition assuming you separated the /home from /root.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    This should give you some free space.

    Yes, /tmp is on the root partition. Unless you put it elsewhere, so this doesn't happen...

    Re: Not enough space

    Looks like you've undersized the root partition. Do you have a live cd handy? If so, run gparted from it and grow the / partition to around 5-10GB. You may have to first shrink the home partition by the same amount to create empty space for the / partition to grow into.

    Wow, that is one seriously tiny root partition.
