    Unhappy /etc is full what can I do?

    Since yesterday my Webmin is giving me a lot of errors because that partition is full.

    What can I do?
    I didnt do the partitions.

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 2.0G 2.0G 0 100% /

    That`s not /etc, its "/", a big difference.
    No surprise that you have to figure out where the place goes and clean up there.

    (My 2 cents is something in /var)

    You would have to remove unwanted files to free up space or you can extend the partition. If you're unsure of how to do this, to risk the possibility of you deleting critical system files, I would recommend contacting a System Administrator to assist.

    I would look in /tmp

    Fun surprises are always in /tmp ;-)

    No, that is / to find the size of /etc do "du -hs /etc".
