comment How to keep track of installed software
Thanks for the link! But I need something on the command line. At first glance, puppet only works with on a desktop system.

comment How to change mount points
Thanks - sounds like the best solution to me as I don't have to fiddle around with creating/modifying partitions. Downtime is not a problem as this machine is not yet online.

comment How to change mount points
As far as I understood /home contains /srv (which I could transfer to somewhere else and move it again to /srv when it has its own partition). And /home really contains only an empty dir root and an empty dir lost+found. So couldn't I just change /home to /srv in fstab (after freeing some space in /)?

comment How to change mount points
Thank you for your detailed answer. Say I'd have enough space on / for /home can't I just switch the mount point from /dev/sda9 /home ext3 defaults 0 2 to /dev/sda9 /srv ext3 defaults 0 2 without creating new partions and moving stuff around? Another strange thing: /home has only one root-folder which is empty. I don't know why it uses 181M as seen in the output.

comment Need help with re-partitioning
Ok thank you! Disk space for the backup files is not a problem as they are rsync'd to another server and deleted afterwards. OpenVZ needs some temp disk space for dumping though and I guess it's using some directory below root. But maybe I can also tell OpenVZ to use a different tmp-dir (on /srv).

Thank you for your answer. But does this give the first entry in the df-output (mounted on "/") enough space back?
