    The filesystem [/] is getting very full.

    It seems the / partition is getting full and is probably causing some crashes we've been experiencing. Does anyone have any idea of what might be taking up the space? I wouldn't even know where to being to look....

    [admin /]$ df
    Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hda1 743466 723784 19682 97% /
    /dev/hda3 198601 96480 102121 49% /var
    /dev/hda4 17671528 1803461 15868067 10% /home

    probably your log files growing large, if its a Raq4 install the latest patch, or search the archive ... this is an old problem

    Have you installed anything lately? I got it when I installed JSP support.

    NOTE: When [/] gets full, this is VERY DANGEROUS!!! This can prevent you from getting root access to your drive!!!!!

    One of the recent Cobalt patches caused the log files to be placed on /. There is a new patch to fix that. Look for the Log Files 4.0.1 patch.

    Thanks everyone for the help. The 4.0.1 logfile patch did the trick. Sorry that this has been discussed already.

    If it isn't there anymore, it has most likely been incorporated into a newer update release.

    well, I've found this post that maybe could help people avoiding fill up their / filesytem.
    I would ask to Experts to post correct instructions on how to make a backup of involved files before proceding...and naturally if this solution is fine or not.

    "Then consider moving files to a partition with more space and creating a
    symbolic link at the old location. /usr is on the root partition and there
    should be directories you can safely move to /home which has plenty of space
    on your server. Quick example:

    mkdir /home/usr
    mkdir /home/usr/local
    mv /usr/local /home/usr/local
    ln -s /home/usr/local /usr/local

    Backup the files first and verify that it worked as expected. Do a 'df -h'
    afterwards and you should have plenty of space"

    I'm wait for your integration...thanx

    I attemped scsi's solution to clean up some space on the root partition by moving the local folder into /home. When I did that majordomo now seems to fail and no mails can be sent to the mailing list. I get this error to the admin account when I try mailing one of our mailing lists.

    It's kind of risky to move over /usr/local/
