Well this stinks... I thought I was doing pretty well at keeping the disk usage in check, but lo and behold, I screwed up today as I was updating to a newer version of Squeezebox Server... Now this thing's max'd out at 100% usage. Any way to salvage what I have? Can I repartition the external USB drive, copy the NAND contents over to the USB partition, and set it to boot from there? Or do I need to wipe this sucker out and start from scratch?

Hi,
If your using the jaunty ubuntu version on the internal flash and can still ssh onto it you could remove the archived .deb files in /var/cache/apt/archives as they are not needed after they are installed, in a [Terminal]

 cd /var/cache/apt/archives

then run

rm -f *.deb

this frees up a bit of space and you can always re download then if need be.

Yeah I was already maxed out after doing that. BTW I think you can do the same thing w/ apt-get clean and apt-get autoclean. In any case, I had a mysql db expand in the end and there were no cached debs. I grabbed the 8GB SD card out of my digital camera, and I reinstalled Debian. So now i have an 8GB home partition instead of 512MB. I'm good to go now  Grin.
