I've got myself into an awkward state with "apt-get upgrade" on my
laptop. I think the problem has to do with apt-get reserving disc
space and somehow not yielding it. df tells me I have 0 k free
space in /, but the "used" amount is less than the partition size.
Moreover, root can write despite the no-free-space, but users
cannot. As you can imagine this is wreaking havoc! Not least
because a side effect is X coming up with no glyphs, and gdm
crashing after a time-out.
What's going on?
