Re: file system full

Which file system is full? /, /opt ....

or have installed the system in a single partition.

Please send output of "df" command.

What command did you use to remove the file ?

Re: file system full

purge your /var/log/messages file and check to see your crontab entries in /etc 's

cron.d
cron.daily
cron.hourly
cron.weekly
cron.monthly

files, which is not needed by you. and also in /etc/crontab file, which is unnecessary for you. may be most of the items in that file is overhead for your system.

Re: file system full

Maybe you deleted a file that was still in use by some application. In this case, it will vanish from the directory listing immediately but will not actually be removed from the disk until the application stops using it. This is standard Unix-style behaviour.

The command "lsof +L1" can be used to find any deleted files that are still being used. It will also indicate the PID file of the process using the file, so you can find out what application needs to be stopped to free the disk space.
