When I tried to download packages from Windows to my CentOS VM it said I have insufficient space on my filesystem. When I checked it it had only 5.4mb left while I've set the VM space limit to 30GB. I'm new to Linux and don't know what to do. How do I expand the size of my filesystem?
will provide you your disk space usage. If you see that
/home is full and you have space in
/, then try putting some files you don't regurarly use. Note: you will have to
sudo because you cannot copy to
/ with normal permissions OR as root do the following:
cd /; sudo mkdir extra_space ; cd extra_space ; sudo mv /home/yourUSERNAME/music/*.mp3 .
Explanation: Change directory to
/, then with super user credentials, create a new directory called "extra_space". Next go into "extra_space" and move as many as possible. mp3 files to this location from your home directory.
