Error says that Root is full.
Disk Usage Analyzer and df -h confirms.
Fedora 17, 3.4.2-4.fc17.x86-64
Acer Aspire 5251-1805 Laptop, AMD V120 2.2GHz, 3GB DDR3, 250GB HD, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics.
When running AutoPlus to install video codecs, I received an error that the Root was almost full.
AutoPlus quit due to the error, and I checked the Root partition to confirm the error: Root is at 99%.
When I installed Fedora I followed the tutorial for a custom partitioning and made: root= 5GB, boot= 500MB, swap= 3GB, home= 220GB.
I haven't loaded many large programs onto the system (LibreOffice, Audacious, Gimp, AutoPlus, Deluge, Evolution) so normally just reinstalling the system wouldn't be a problem, but I can't loose my work files on the system and I don't have enough media available to back them all up again.
What I am wondering about is the procedure to resize the Root partition safely and what a good size would be?
Most of my work on the computer is Office applications, some graphics work, E-books, Internet (streaming and flash videos, research, Down/Uploading torrents), watching movies, music, and as for gaming: I mainly stick with old DOS games (Kroz still Rocks!).
Also, I am not a systems guru by any means, so step-by-step instructions would be great.
