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
Ulrich

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
ulrich

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.

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.
