Seems odd that so much space is taken up by / - perhaps under 5.x more space is required? I really do need to install 5.x at some point ... :P Is there no chance you can perform a standard install from scratch? I had contemplated moving from 4.8 to 5.x, but am seriously putting it off because I imagine *upgrading* from 4.x to 5.x isn't too straight-forward - perhaps others could shed light on whether it's recommended to attempt it or not? Can you not do a backup of your data and start over with a fresh install of 5.2? You have stacks of room on the hdd spare, so presumably doing this wouldn't be too problematic. > > Cheers, > Richard > > > On Tue, 10 Feb 2004, Jez Hancock wrote: > > > On Tue, Feb 10, 2004 at 12:36:27PM +1100, Richard Beyer wrote: > > > I tried doing an upgrade from 4.8 to 5.2, and part way through I got a > > > filesystem full error (about 3 in a row actually) as each partion filled > > > up.
