post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to download a torrent , but it comes up that I have no free space left. I checked the disk and it shows that I have 14gb of free space left. Anyone know what to do about this?

Whats your partition setup look like? You might be running out of swap space or /var space.

I installed Puppy Linux to a 16gb thumb drive, I'm only using about 700mb, but I'm running out of space. There is no partition? I mean it won't let me change the size or anything like that. I have 14.25gb of free space left.
It's just one big partition. It won't let me unmount it either.

I got the problem fixed, I guess I needed to resize the personal storage file. Which sucks, because you can only increase it in increments of 512mb, then you have to reboot for it to take effect, then repeat a million times.

well I have no experience with puppy...

I'm glad to hear you got it fixed, but it sucks that it can't be done a different way.
