I tried using

Code: Select all

sudo mv /var/hda/files/TV /mnt/media
but it says no such file or directory.

I tried

Code: Select all

sudo mv /var/hda/files/ /mnt/media
and it said unable to remove target: directory not empty.

Tried

Code: Select all

sudo mv /var/hda/files/ /mnt/media/file
and that one seemed to go through.

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/files/sharename
also says no such file or directory.
Also, what is LVM? I hadn't heard of it when I set this up.

As I previously stated you have to use the directory names (typically lower case) for shares. If you do:

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/files
It will show you the directory names.
Tried

Code: Select all

sudo mv /var/hda/files/ /mnt/media/file
and that one seemed to go through.
Have to be careful as there is a folder called drives which is typically where you mount additional drives. Moving it could cause issues unless you update /etc/fstab accordingly.

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/files/sharename
also says no such file or directory.
You need to replace sharename with the name of the share.
Also, what is LVM? I hadn't heard of it when I set this up.
Logical Volume Management. It comes standard with Linux when you install the OS. We don't recommend using it as Greyhole is a simpler solution.

When/if this is resolved, please let us know so we can close it.

Sorry, I derped when I was writing the last post; I used /tv not /TV. I can't remember what I meant with the /sharename line, so another derp on me. I tried undoing the move from /var/hda/files to /mnt/media/file but it says
setting attribute 'security.selinux' for 'security.selinux': No space left on device.

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/files
gave :
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 6 Jan 3
drwxr-xr-x. 12 root root 152 Jan 3
Also, I'm sorry if I'm annoying you, it is most definitely not my intention. This is just my first real experience with anything Linux or GUI-less, so I've been flying completely blind.

No worries. I did not intend to make you feel that you were being annoying. Sorry if I did.

Looks like the directories have been successfully moved. So the root partition should be reduced in size. Check by doing:

Code: Select all

df -h

dh -h lists root as still being full, save 20k-150k at any given time.
This makes me wish I knew what happened to /dev/sda2 on my boot drive, it had over 90% of the space on the drive but vanished at some point. Would love to give that space to root.

dh -h lists root as still being full,
Might need to reboot. There is something that is taking up a lot of space. The OS and Amahi should only use about 5-6GB of the 50GB.

Might need to backtrack what you did manually to figure out what is hogging the space.

Rebooted, root is still full, but free space has gone to 364k. I think I remember seeing that plex files hogging were on root. At least, that's what I think I got from

Code: Select all

sudo du -m /var | sort -nr | head -30
when I found it earlier on a different help topic.
Only things I can remember doing are those changes to shares as seen in the pics earlier & the things gone over here.

Check /var/hda/web-apps directory. Might need to uninstall Plex.

Also try:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf cleanall

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/web-apps
did return a line saying
drrwxrwxr-x 4 apache users 30 date time plexms.

Code: Select all

sudo dnf cleanall
returned
No such command: cleanall. Please use /bin/dnf --help
It could be a DNF plugin command, try: "dnf install 'dnf-command(cleanall)'"
Should I use dnf install 'dnf-command(cleanall)' & try it again?

Sorry, should be:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf clean all
Uninstall Plex media Server and ensure the directory vanishes.

Now check drive space.
