Drive space keeps reducing
« on: April 26, 2019, 05:32:24 am »
Hello,

I have an issue related to the drive space.

I have Peppermint installed on a 8Gb USB stick, so I boot from it on an old Acer netbook. The only programs I need are libreoffrice, dropbox and chromium, so I haven't installed any others and I have no big data (music, videos...) on it. For the first months everything worked well, but months after months I noticed that the drive space keep reducing to the point that now I struggle to have 1 Gb free.

I constantly use bleachbit to save as much space as I can, but the space keeps diminishing....

What can I do? Thanks

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
rm -r .cache/*
rm -r .thumbnails/normal/*

Should get rid of all garbage ;)

EDIT: There was a typo on the first line, sorry... stupid grammer checker is in Swedish  >:(

Thanks for the answer. I did all those commands, but in the end I still have the same problem. In this moment I have 1,2Gb free, at the beginning I had 4 or 5...

Any other idea?

What's the output from
Code: [Select]
journalctl --disk-usage

Is this a LiveUSB with persistence, or a 'proper' install to a USB stick ?

A fresh install of Peppermint will use approx. 5Gb.
You said your USB was 8Gb in total, so how did you have 4-5Gb free space earlier?
You could remove all packages you don't need. That should bring the size down to approx. 3Gb, but I have no clue what you need  :-\

Maybe were not 5gb, I don't remember exactly. But surely was far more than the actual 1,2gb.

About the stick, is a proper installation. I boot from the stick.
this is the output:

Archived and active journals take up 3.7M on disk.

Here are your options,
1) Get yourself a 16Gb or 32Gb usb-3 stick. I bought a 16Gb last week for $8
2) Buy a cheap 32Gb or 60Gb SSD, replace your internal drive and intall a fresh system
3) Run the following command
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l > my_pkg.txt
Host the resulting text file on pastebin and post a link back here so we can help you remove stuff you don't need.
For this to work we also need to know exactly what you don't need!

@Pin surely it's easier to buy another stick, but for now I'd wish to keep this one. However thanks for the advice

Have you limited and flushed your web browser cache ?
(which can become quite large)

Also post the output from
Code: [Select]

and

How come you still have 20 kernels installed?

Do you know how to clean them??

He doesn't have 20 kernels installed .. just 2 (4.15.0-47 and 4.15.0-48) .. and the config files for a ton that have already been removed :)

You can clean up those config files with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-image-4.15.0-29-generic linux-image-4.15.0-30-generic linux-image-4.15.0-32-generic linux-image-4.15.0-33-generic linux-image-4.15.0-34-generic linux-image-4.15.0-36-generic linux-image-4.15.0-38-generic linux-image-4.15.0-39-generic linux-image-4.15.0-42-generic linux-image-4.15.0-43-generic linux-image-4.15.0-45-generic linux-image-4.15.0-46-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-29-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-30-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-32-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-33-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-34-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-36-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-38-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-39-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-42-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-43-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-45-generic linux-modules-4.15.0-46-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-29-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-30-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-32-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-33-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-34-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-36-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-38-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-39-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-42-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-43-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-45-generic linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-46-generic linux-image-4.13.0-32-generic linux-image-4.13.0-37-generic linux-image-4.13.0-38-generic linux-image-4.13.0-39-generic linux-image-4.13.0-41-generic linux-image-4.13.0-43-generic linux-image-4.13.0-45-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-32-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-37-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-38-generic  linux-image-extra-4.13.0-39-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-41-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-43-generic linux-image-extra-4.13.0-45-generic
but as they're just the configs, it's not going to save you much space .. just make things tidier :)

I still think the browser cache is probably your next best bet for trimming space .. or maybe log files.
