When one problem went gone, an another one came. Mad

How do I resize the persist space? The space is running low, though I have more room in usb. My stick is 3.7gb and persist limit is 1.6gb, but I haven't set it anywhere. How to boost it?

I noticed this with
df -h

and the mounted aptosid's directories were 100% usage. Also, I can't download any files because of the lack of space.

you are using vfat filesystem so you have a file that is used for the persistence - per the default the installer uses 50% of the space free after copying the iso.

remove temporary files, clean the apt-cache

You may want to try the following way Wink

no guarantee that it works. Well at least has worked for me! you were warned!


Backup your persistence file!!

You can not use this way if you are using the persistence file in any way.



The default persistance file is named "aptosid-rw"

1. make sure the filesystem on the persistence it's clean
      Code:

e2fsck aptosid-rw


2. adding(appending) 5GB to this file
      Code:

dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile count=5120 bs=1M
cat testfile >> aptosid-rw
rm testfile


3. we need the real size im MB so get the size of your "new" aptosid-rw using

      Code:

ls -l aptosid-rw | nawk '{v=$5/(1024*1024); print v}'


4. say we got 6758 as output, then we resize the filesystem on the persistence file to 6700M
      Code:

resize2fs -p aptosid-rw 6700M


5. and finnaly "recheck" that filesystem
      Code:

e2fsck aptosid-rw

ls -l aptosid-rw | nawk '{v=$1/(1024*1024); print v}'

returns 0 , so what to do?

sry must say $5
      Code:

ls -l aptosid-rw | nawk '{v=$5/(1024*1024); print v}'


also changed in the previous post

Edit: any way as you are using vfat the file size has a 2GB limit. so the figures are purely an example
