one gig?
sorry, i was amazed when i had a 165 meg swap file from gimp.

check and make sure that it's really mounted(that partition)
do a df and make sure that your total is at least  correct.

I have found my down loads, and cleaned them up, but I have almost an
extra gig from where I do not know.  I installed at around 750 meg.  I
added an extra 400 meg in programs, this should still leave me with 1
gig available, I've cleaned off 200 meg of my 400 meg downloads, the 200
meg is the only opening. I show.  Does Linux keep a cache of what has
transpired, if so where is it and how can it be cleaned.  I've cleaned
up netscape's cache, and that was 15 meg, but I cannot account for the
extra 1000 meg!!!!



Oh I've slipped the surly bonds of dos
and danced the skies on LINUX silvered wings.
I assigned 4 drives when I set it up.  / , /home, /swap, /stuff
df does not show the condition of /swap, and I guess it will not.  but the one I am worrying about is the root drive.  it should show 750 meg( the origional install) and 200 meg (my crap)  and have 900 meg free!  /swap is 64 meg, and /home is about 500 meg, and /stuff is 1gig.  my root drive is showing 96 percent after I erased 200 meg.
