Free Space

Ok, I have been having significant issues with space as of late. I am trying to install a python package but I can’t even move the file from a flash drive. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to free up space. I am using a stock install. I am not sure what is taking up so much space. Is there anything I can delete from the install?

One thing that helps is to edit /etc/systemd/journald.conf to limit the journal size to perhaps 50Meg or so. You’ve probably seen your free space disappear over time!

You will not see the effects from this until the journal file round robin goes through a cycle, however. I have not found a way to “reset” the journal, but that does not mean there is no way to do it…

The next obvious step would be to uninstall stuff you do not need.
