    Hi all,

    some weeks ago I installed Ubuntu Chroot on a new ext3fs Partition. Problem is now that I uninstalled it again, I think I lost some of my "hd" space, as there is only 4,2 GB left free. And i have nearly no extra apps installed, except a running and a mapping app.

    Problem is i cant find the partition that i have created.

    Is used this help to get ubuntu installed.

    Ubuntu ChRoot + LXDE on Palm Pre. - xda-developers

    I deleted the image. I reinstalled the phone with webos doctor. still only 4,2 gb of 8 gb available.

    would be great i anyone of you could help me.

    Regards

    Have you tried tailor (get thru WOSQI or Preware) to reclaim the space?

    Hi,

    thank you for your help! I tried tailor befor but installed it again.

    is says:

    select partition:
    there is just: usb(media) 6.078 GB
    unused space: none

    partition size: 6224
    fs size: 6222
    fs used: 2201
    fs free: 4021

    I checked filesystem and tried to enter new size, but of course I cant go over 6224.

    regards

    Maybe i'm totally wrong. I just thought that 4.2 gb of free memory on a 8gb device. i can't remember that there was that less free memory left in the past.

    this is what i get with lvdislay in terminal:

    the link you provided that you said you followed does NOT create any partitions at all, it creates nothing more than an image file to use in place of a real partition, you should have got back all the space used the second you deleted the .img file.

    i cant remember what name they ended up with but sometimes when i used .img files using that method after a bad crash id sometimes end up with a copy of the .img which was hidden (weird name with a . before the name), maybe use internalZ, have it show hidden files and have a good rummage around wherever you put the .img file, that guide makes it look like /media/internal, when i did it mine were in /media/cryptofs, so could be anywhere.

    you will never reclaim ALL 8gb anyways, even with a freshly formatted 8gb usb stick you dont get to use all of it, even empty theres a fair bit missing, then theres webOS itsself which will use a fair chunk of it as well (same as with android and every other OS out there), then add in whatever media files you added, pics/music/etc.

    Hi and thanks for your help,

    in fact there was a copy of the image still on the flash. I used

    Code:
    find / -type f -size +20000k -exec ls -lh {} \; | awk '{ print $9 ": " $5 }'
    to find all files over 20 MB size and there it was!!

    Thanks alot for your help!

    Problem solved

    Regards
    Ulrich
