I am currently installing Arch Linux in my VMware non-pro/commercial use. I downloaded the latest Linux .iso available in the website. This is my third/fourth time installing Arch Linux and 2nd time installing within today due to a problem:
Since I was a beginner in Arch, I was following the Install Arch Linux in VMware Workstation guide. On my first attempt I gave 20GB disk space in my VMware settings. Just like the guide I divided this on this partition: on my first attempt, sda1 has 500M with EFI, sda2 has 18.5GB with Linux File System, and sda3 has 1GB with Swap type. While on my 2nd attempt I gave 200GB disk space in my VMware setting and gave bigger value on sda2 (with 100GB) and sda3 (with 2GB).
-----here is the problem now-----
I did follow all steps properly and as soon as I rebooted my Linux (as instructed), I immediately tried to install KDE Plasma or GNOME as my Desktop Environment using How to Properly Install and Setup KDE Plasma on Arch Linux and How to Install and Configure KDE Plasma Desktop in Arch Linux. However, no progress is being made since whenever I'm trying to install, it says: "Partition / too full" and the download/ installation is being cancelled—this is where I am stuck. It keeps saying Partition / too full at any of the guides there.
I would like to ask, what could be the problem why it keeps saying partition / is too full when I gave 20 (first attempt) and 200G (second attempt)? And how can I resolve this?
Here is the
df -h output as well as the
cfdisk /dev/sda output:
And lastly, here is the output that I'm having problem with Partition.
/dev/sda2that is 200G but that isn't root (
/), it is
/mnt. Also, please don't follow random tutorials for Arch. Arch has probably the best documentation of the Linux world, please follow the Arch Wiki. wiki.archlinux.org/title/Installation_guide
