[Issue] No space left after fresh install
from L0Wigh@sh.itjust.works to postmarketos@lemmy.ml on 11 Aug 2023 09:18

Hi, I just installed postmarketos on my OnePlus 6 and after an update of the packages (or install a new one), I get “no space left” errors. I followed the guide and flashed the partition like it’s written in it. Any reason that can cause this ?

OnePlus 6 with 128gb, using the prebuilt sxmo (sway) edge image.

You need to expand the filesystem to use your whole card.

There are several tutorials out there, and I couldn’t really settle on the best one to link you. Google “sd resize2fs” and read through several until you find one that makes sense to you.

Is it the same thing as adding free space to pmbootstrap while doing manual installation ?

I’m honestly not sure. It sounds similar.

df -h

Should give you an idea of how much space you actually have. If your disk size is way lower than its capacity, then the partition needs to be expanded.

How do I manage to do that with /dev/dm-1 ? I really don’t get how to apply this tutorial to my case…

I encountered same problem because I used

pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs

instead of

pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition userdata

That wasn’t the problem. Seems like currently (might be fixed now) edge IMG aren’t using the whole phone size. I had to use a trick with btrfs to have the full size
