So I read two previous topics and the solution is to perform a fresh install and restore from backup. That seems a bit ridiculous to me. Looking through he filesystem I noticed there are old copies of packages that are no longer used (upgraded). It seems they are not being cleaned up and lingering. I have several installs of IPfire running and all of them are running low on space with the 158 update, failing to update to 159.
Since /var is mounted on a separate partition, my solution is to:
mkdir -p /var/pakfire/tmp mv /opt/pakfire/tmp /var/packfire/ ln -s /var/pakfire/tmp /opt/pakfire/tmp
That frees up about 100+ MB and allows the upgrade to 159 to complete. Is there anything that can be done to correct this issue permanently, that doesn’t involve a full reinstall or extensive manual intervention?
