  • Linux Lite: 2.8 32bit

Ok peeps, I keep getting this message at the start of the computer with LL, I think I know what it means but I want to be sure.
So if I can get a shout out about it that would be great.


Thanks.


Here is what I get, then the screen goes blank and the mouse cursor is an X I close it and then the blank screen


[size=78%]Failed to write file '/home/my login name/.cache/xfce4-notifyd-theme.rc.1NKLYZ': write() failed: No space left on device[/size]
[/size]

df -hIf /home is full, clear some space maybe dowloads or move to another disk/drive etc....

You know I thought of that too. After all its what it says right? But when I try to delete stuff it just gives me the message again and oddly enough it won't delete.

My thought is that the hard drive is about to crater, or something. Anyway. Here is the stats of my system.

Dell Poweredge T310 server
Quad core 4x Intel Xeon @ 2.40ghz.
32935 mb memory

With SCSI discs 3 ATA Samsung HE161HJ drives. and a Dell virtual disk. (no information)
I have added a sound card so I can at least hear some things on this thing. If you need that info let me know.

Thanks.

@ohjrson Did df yield a full disk? 100% or so..
Not surprising deleting gave the same, you want to delete bypassing the trash bin, (shift del) may but may need to use rm command from terminal...
Use rm with caution..


I would start with a folder you no longer need... example - Downloads... but it will remove everything!!! Should remove all files.. Shouldn't need sudo as your own directory
Code: [Select]
rm /home/user/Downloads/*

If it doesn't you can as try with rm -rf just make sure the path is fully expressed.
