Apologies for this question but I am very new to Linux. When I installed my Fedora distribution I only allocated 20GB of my hard drive space for its partition. I recently used GParted and tried to increase the size of the partition to around 40GB. I was under the impression that I was successful but today I tried to create a directory and I got the following error message:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘b_scripts’: No space left on device
I checked the space on my disk and found out that I had used 20GB on my fedora-root.
derrick@dazza >> df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on devtmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev tmpfs 1.9G 253M 1.7G 14% /dev/shm tmpfs 1.9G 1.5M 1.9G 1% /run tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/mapper/fedora-root 20G 19G 0 100% / tmpfs 1.9G 128K 1.9G 1% /tmp tmpfs 386M 20K 386M 1% /run/user/42 tmpfs 386M 28K 386M 1% /run/user/1000
Is a partition different from a Filesystem? How come there are only 20GB in total allocated to my fedora-root? What is my solution? How do I increase the size of my fedora-root Filesystem so that it is more than 20GB Size?
