    would somebody let me know what is /dev/sda1 and how i can reduce stuff in there? it says it's full by almost 99% and some services are not working.
    thanks a lot

    /dev/sda1 is one of your partitions... You don't want to clear data on the partition that you need...

    Type "df -h"

    Mine looks like this

    [root@ns1 ~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda2 215G 44G 161G 22% /
    /dev/sdb1 916G 503G 368G 58% /backups
    /dev/sda1 122M 21M 95M 19% /boot
    [root@ns1 ~]#

    Now my partitions are setup very simple and if I was looking for things to clear out I would be looking for old logs and unneeded backup files. Pick up a good unix book or play around on a test box with partition sizes.
