Rev C. File systems are full??

I got my BBB Rev C. up & running. But now it says that all of the on board flash memory is full:

root@beaglebone:/# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 1.7G 1.7G 0 100% /
udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev

`-mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 29.7G 0 part
mmcblk1 179:8 0 1.8G 0 disk

-mmcblk1p1 179:9 0 96M 0 part /boot/uboot
`-mmcblk1p2 179:10 0 1.7G 0 part /

I think I have somehow messed something up. When I first got it I tried to install LXDE. But then I uninstalled it. I know very little about linux. So could someone please point me in the right direction?? I don’t see how I could have possibly consumed all of the onboard flash memory.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.


Can you run fdisk –l ? It should show you the physical partitions on your system. The onboard MMC should be 4gb. If you have a microsd chip in there it would show up too.

root@beaglebone:~# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 3867 MB, 3867148288 bytes, 7553024 sectors

Okay, that's the 3rd one i've seen.

Where did you order the board from? Does it physically have a Rev C
Sticker on it?

If you "reflash" it with:

Does it now have 4GB?

I've personally picked up one of the Adafruit ones last week, so i
know they have 4GB eMMC's


These are most likely bad boards sent out by Circuitco that are actually Rev B boards with Rev C labels on them. If you think you have one, request an RMA immediately if not sooner and it will be replaced…
