Re: [vox-tech] I'm out of space on /

Off the bat a few things popped at me... first double-check the size on /proc. That seems a bit high, particularly given your second email that says the partition is not even that large.
I reran and got the same:

0 20
2.7M bin
13M boot
0 cdrom
88K dev
6.9M etc
1.4G home
1.0K initrd
0 initrd.img
0 initrd.img.old
1.0K l20
80M lib
12K lost+found
2.0K media
6.0K mnt
du: `proc/3077/task': No such file or directory
du: `proc/3077/fd': No such file or directory
385M proc
390K root
3.6M sbin
1.0K srv
0 sys
24K tmp
873M usr
83M var
0 vmlinuz
0 vmlinuz.old

I dont' know if I have a rouge process. Not even sure how to go about looking for it. I did a ps -ef, and everything (virtually) is regarding X and KDE, I just rebooted the box.

If you have a rogue process
chewing up disk space, you'll want to solve that first. Second, also check the inodes available with df -i just in case this is a case of inode exhaustion instead of disk space.
I'm ok on inodes

hydrogen:/# df -i
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              72288   11318   60970   16% /
tmpfs                  48280       3   48277    1% /dev/shm
/dev/hda8            3541440   19689 3521751    1% /home
/dev/hda7             192768      43  192725    1% /tmp
/dev/hda5             610432   43762  566670    8% /usr
/dev/hda6             366528    2858  363670    1% /var
fe:/home             6553600    8424 6545176    1% /mnt/fe/home

 My final thought is to look
through /lib and see if you need all the libraries you have installed as it seems to be the lion's share of the partition.
I did go thru my /lib directory yesterday and deleted some unused stuff, and that freed up enough space to allow me to install the new kernel
