My computer has become quite strange the last days, last week grub stopped working and just halted at the grub prompt.
I can manually start the system by writing
insmod /boot/grub/linux.mod linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro initrd /initrd.img boot
But if I type something like
I get a error:
error: out of disk
Does anybody know why this occurs?
I don't think that /boot/ is full, since it is part of / (5% used).
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 285G 14G 258G 5% / none 1.5G 312K 1.5G 1% /dev none 1.5G 184K 1.5G 1% /dev/shm none 1.5G 348K 1.5G 1% /var/run none 1.5G 4.0K 1.5G 1% /var/lock none 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /lib/init/rw
The system is a Ubuntu 10.04 based system on a old HP laptop.
