I use Ubuntu 11.04. There's no space left on device. I have encrypted the disk that takes up space (maybe it's good to disable it, but I don't know how).

In shell, I get this message:

No space left on device

I run df -I:

Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/sda1            3055616  602499 2453117   20% /
none                  210161     890  209271    1% /dev

                     3055616  602499 2453117   20% /home/myuser df -I

Edit:

When I run only df:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

Edit:

I thinking about few solution but I don't know which better and how exactly to do them:

  1. to enlarge partition size (I cant install gparted - no more disk space)

  2. remove encryption of partition - I really not need that

Check with the following which directory is taking up space:

du -hs /*

it will give a list of directories and their sizes in /. Find the directory taking up all the space and fix the issue. Inside the folders you can also use du -hs *

You can even do it recursively, with du -h | sort -h – Peltier Oct 18 '11 at 14:26
    
sort -h will only work with newer versions of gnucoreutils. – Kevin M Oct 18 '11 at 16:16
