After years i decided to upgrade from Fedora 15 to 18, but as per the guidelines only 2 versions can be jumped, so i decided to settle with Fedora 17 and ran
preupgrade , all was going fine, till after sometime, it told me that i didnt had any space, so i canceled the initial process, made some space and tried again.
This time- after reboot- when it was copying files, it encountered error(s) on couple of files, for which I had to boot back to terminal an uninstall the terminal.
Eventually the setup completed and post the final boot the kernel 3.6 panic'd - unable to mount VFS
After long tries of different ways, still nothing worked, so I decided to download the Live ISO from their server and install it.
I selected- install on free space - assuming it would overwrite its files, but it didnt and created new partitions.
So, now the whole disk is running out of space
To manage that, I manually deleted the left overs of the old installation,while only keeping the backup.
All set and done, the
df -h is showing close to 50% free space in old LVM , but when i open the same in
gparted its still showin 99% full.
e2fsck of the
dev/Volgroup00/root, it also came clean.
All the partitions are ext4 type.
Please help me in reclaiming this lost space.
